Peter Hill

Peter Hill is a pianist, writer and broadcaster ( who gives recitals, masterclasses and lectures around the world. His recorded cycles of Messiaen and of Berg, Schoenberg and Webern have gained superlative acclaim, with the Messiaen described as ‘one of the most impressive solo recording projects of recent years’ (New York Times) and receiving the composer’s endorsement: 'Beautiful technique, a true poet: I am a passionate admirer of Peter Hill's playing.’ Peter has recently embarked on a series of Bach recordings (for Delphian) with Book 2 of the Well-Tempered Clavier chosen as CD of the Week on BBC Radio 3. Writings include books on Stravinsky and Messiaen, among them a biography (Messiaen, Yale) based on unprecedented access to the composer’s archive. Peter is a Professor Emeritus at Sheffield University and in 2008 was awarded the annual prize for musical scholarship by the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
