Praised for his ‘“astonishing technical facility”, “singing line” and “perfect sense of balance”, Peter Tuite has garnered international acclaim for his recital and concerto appearances throughout the world, and in particular, for his performances of 18th century music. His joint traversal of the complete fifty-two Sonatas for Keyboard by Joseph Haydn was met with outstanding reviews; and in May 2020, concurrent with the completion of a new film of the Goldberg Variations (recorded in the Long Room Library of Trinity College Dublin) he was named Founding Fellow of the Glenn Gould Bach Fellowship awarded by the City of Weimar. As part of this honour, he will complete a series of recordings and films over the coming year, exploring different perspectives on the late works of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Educated at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Oxford and as a Fulbright Scholar at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, he subsequently went on to become Head of the Keyboard Faculty of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Between 2015 and 2018, he was the Head of Piano and Keyboard Instruments at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London and as of 2020 continues to serve on the faculty of both these institutions.
A devoted chamber musician, he has collaborated with numerous artists at different times, from Hakan Hardenberger to the Vanbrugh String Quartet, from Pekka Kuusisto to singers such as Robin Tritschler and Claudia Boyle. He is one of the regular artists that attends the International Piano Week in Montepulciano, Tuscany, and is co-founder of the New Lights Festival in London – a festival devoted to contemporary currents in music. In 2020 he became a Loubser Fellow and has recently set up a new multi-media initiative called the Glass Bead Studio, which develops dramatic new presentations of music within film, recording and art-installation.
