Peter Tuite

Praised for his "astonishing technical facility", "singing line" and "perfect sense of balance", Peter Tuite is now widely regarded as one of Ireland's leading classical musicians and one of the stand-out talents of his generation. Over the past decade he has garnered considerable international acclaim for his recital and concerto appearences throughout the world.

 

More recently, his twelve concert joint traversal of the complete 52 Sonatas for Keyboard by Joseph Haydn was met with exceptional reviews; and he has just completed a new multi-media filmed performance of the Goldberg Variations at the famous Long Room Library--a unique project scheduled for release next year.

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 and later the first Senior Dean of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. 

 

He is (since October 2015) currently the Head of Piano and Keyboard Instruments at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Along with numerous further concert appearances, upcoming projects include the recording and filming of the complete Haydn Sonatas for Keyboard and a new series of compositions based on short portraits of Dublin entitled Palm of the Hand Portraits, which will have its world premiere in 2016.
