In the years since his unprecedented success as Silver Medal winner of the 1982 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Peter Donohoe has built an extraordinary world-wide career, encompassing a huge repertoire and over forty years’ experience as a pianist, as well as continually exploring many other avenues in music-making. He is acclaimed as one of the foremost pianists of our time, for his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique.

For this recital, Peter is joined by violinist Alissa Margulis and Swedish cellist Per Nystrom. Alissa’s playing is described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional’; Ivry Gitlis praises it as ‘a revelation’ and Martha Argerich calls her a ‘strong musical personality’. Per is co-founder & artistic advisor of Aurora Chamber Music and principal cellist in several Nordic chamber and symphony orchestras.
