Buxton Artist-in-Residence for 2019, Peter Donohoe CBE, gave his first public recital in Buxton. He made waves by securing the joint first prize at the 1982 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. He has recorded extensively, winning the Gramophone Magazine Concerto Recording of the year in 1988 for his recording of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No 2, and the Grand Prix du Disque for his recording of Liszt's Sonata in B minor in 1993. He has worked extensively with the CBSO and Sir Simon Rattle, a link which led to his appearance at Rattle’s inaugural concert as chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He has been awarded honorary doctorates by no fewer than seven UK universities.
In the first of his series of four concerts at this year’s Festival he offers an entirely Viennese programme, including classics by Mozart, Haydn and Schubert and a seminal work by the father of the Second Viennese School, Arnold Schoenberg.
