Peter Longworth, Sept 2021.jpeg


Described as “dazzlingly-atmospheric” (the Glasgow Herald), Peter’s music has been performed in North America, Japan, and throughout Europe, as well as in UK venues such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Cadogan Hall, Kings Place, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Ensembles who have commissioned, performed, or commercially recorded his work include the London Mozart Players, the Orchestra of Opera North, the Brno Philharmonic, the Edinburgh Quartet, the Hebrides Ensemble, the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, and the New Conductors Orchestra of New York City. 


An alumnus of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Young Composers Programme and the RSNO Composers Hub, Peter studied composition with Mark-Anthony Turnage at the Royal College of Music and with Matthew King at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  A finalist in the 2014 Keuris Composers Contest and the 2015 Philip Bates Composition Prize, Peter’s work often draws on his strong affinity with Italian culture for inspiration. 


Peter has taught at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama since 2018.
