As a soloist, Peter Bussereau's repertoire ranges from the baroque concerti of Vivaldi and Bach, through the concerti of Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Tchaikovsky to works of the twentieth century by Elgar and Finzi. A recent collaboration with composer Richard Sisson led to Peter giving the world premieres of a series of concertos, including one for violin and oboe. Peter was also proud to have performed the second UK performance of the concerto by Loris Tjeknavorian, with the composer present, and the first performance of sonatas by Michael Miller and Alex Woolf.

Pianist Paul Turner is a widely experienced soloist and chamber music player renowned for his sensitive playing: “...superbly partnered by Paul Turner’s sensitive and alert accompaniments...that sixth sense of timing which is the true accompanist’s particular gift” (Eastern Daily Press). He excels in a wide range of genres as demonstrated in recent events, which include: performances of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Concerto in F; his National Theatre debut with Maria Ewing in a celebration for the life of Sir Peter Hall; the Ralph Vaughan Williams festival with Jack Liebeck and members of the Sacconi Quartet; Kings College, Cambridge with Nicholas Daniel during Easter week; Ligeti ‘Hommage a Brahms’ with Martin Owen; recording with Miranda Dale for the Proust Society and a new collaboration with BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist, saxophonist Robert Burton.
