During the 70â€™s he briefly flirted with a career in writing film music, signing notably the score for Pour Memoire by Jean Daniel Pollet that was chosen in the French contingent of films and seen at the Festival International de Cannes. His interest in theatrical works have led him to conceive evenings of guitar and voice around the works of Juan Ramon Jimenezâ€™s, Platero y Yo
His London debut in 1985, featured three impromptus written especially for him by the Polish composer, Piotr Moss.
Often aware of currents before their time, his interest in early nineteenth century guitar chamber music led to the world premier Wenzl Matiegka recording, in London, for Erasmus in 1987. The recording has been highly regarded on both sides of the Atlantic. He has recently recorded Matiegkaâ€™s op 19 & 22 for guitar and violin with David Chivers.
Mr Chivers has been heard on live and pre-recorded programmes on syndicated radio in the United States, Classic FM and the BBC in Great Britain, Radio Suisse Romande.
Over the last decade he has performed more that 300 concerts with his son the violinist David Chivers under the name of the Chivers Duo in Europe and the United States.
