Available languages: EnglishBritish pianist and percussionist Peter Donohoe attended Chetham's School of Music in Manchester, and auditioned for the Royal Manchester College of Music at age 14, when he became a student of Derek Wyndham. At the University of Leeds, Donohoe studied with Alexander Goehr, though he returned to the Royal Manchester College of Music and received his bachelor's degrees in piano and percussion in 1976. Donohoe worked as a freelance percussionist, performing with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and other orchestras, and also performed as a keyboardist for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Hallé Orchestra. He concentrated his attention on piano, and studied with Yvonne Loriod, Olivier Messiaen, Vlado Perlemuter, William Glock, Roger Woodward, Charles Rosen, Sequeira Costa, and Pál Kadosa. He won several piano competitions in England and Europe, but it was his silver medal performance at the 1982 International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition that brought him international recognition. He became the principal conductor and artistic director of the Northern Chamber Orchestra, a position he held between 1984 and 1987, when he formed the Orchestra of the Mill, which he conducted until 1993. He was named principal guest conductor of the Bath Philharmonia in 2000, and he received the Order of the British Empire in 2010. He has recorded for EMI, Naxos, Warner Classics, Chandos, Hyperion, and Somm, among other labels.
