“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, including New York, Chicago, London, Montreal, and Vancouver. He has been a soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony, the Fairbanks Symphony, the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony, and other orchestras in North America.

Mr. Longworth is a founding member of the Duke Piano Trio, which has performed throughout the United States and Canada, and he has appeared in collaboration with many of today’s finest instrumentalists. His performances have frequently been heard on national radio.

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.

Born in 1964 in London, Mr. Longworth began his piano studies in Brussels. He studied at Northwestern University with Arthur Tollefson and at the University of Michigan with Eckhart Sellheim and after a year at the Banff Centre for the Fine Arts, he completed his studies at the Royal Conservatory with Marek Jablonski, Leon Fleisher and Marc Durand.
