Peter Bussereau, while at the University of London, became an external student at the Guildhall School of Music, studying at first with Max Morgan and later with Josef Aranof. In 1981 he gained the Silver Medal from the Guildhall School following his diploma recital. After being awarded the Kathleen Nixon Scholarship from London University he became a full-time student at the Guildhall School but shortly after took up an appointment with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Peter has continued his studies with Homi Kanga and Hugh Bean. Having worked with many of this country’s leading orchestras he is currently a member of the BBC Concert Orchestra as well as directing his own chamber orchestra, the Camerata of Luton, and leading the Quartet Camerata. He has appeared as soloist with several orchestras in southern England, performing in various venues including St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London and St. Albans Abbey and has broadcast on BBC Three Counties Radio.
Peter’s previous appearance with the Hitchin Symphony Orchestra was as a most sensitive and memorable soloist in a performance a few seasons ago of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor. The Orchestra is delighted to welcome him back again as soloist tonight to perform the Brahms Violin Concerto.
