"Peter Longworth is a concert pianist of such power and grace that even the crystal baubles on the chandeliers at Orchestra Hall tingle, dance and resonate when he plays." -Chicago Tribune
Pianist Peter Longworth has established himself as one of the most sought after performers of his generation. Equally comfortable as soloist and chamber musician, he has performed in cities around the world. In North America stops include New York, Chicago, London, Montreal, and Vancouver; abroad, he's performed in London, Moscow, Brussels, Glasgow, and Nice.
He has been a soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Fairbanks Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, Kitchener- Waterloo Symphony, and other orchestras in North America. Mr. Longworth has collaborated with conductors such as Bramwell Tovey, Edwin Outwater, Eduard Zilberkant, Nikolas Caoile, and Joseph Rescigno.
Since 1991, Mr. Longworth has been a faculty member of the Glenn Gould School in Toronto. Through his work there as a private teacher, and as one of the key facilitators of the chamber music and collaborative programs, he has influenced many of the most gifted young musicians of the next generation.
