Peter Donohoe was born in Manchester in 1953. He studied at Chetham's School of Music for seven years, graduated in music at Leeds University, and went on to study at the Royal Northern College of Music with Derek Wyndham and then in Paris with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriod.
He is acclaimed as one of the foremost pianists of our time, for his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique.
to UK audiences as a song-pianist, Gary is now fast gaining recognition as an emerging
conducting talent and his recent debut as an opera conductor – Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux for Chelsea Opera Group
– was lavishly praised by the critics in a series of 5 star reviews.
Peter Donohoe will play a grand piano from Steingraeber & Sohne, Bayreuth, Germany.
