Peter Fisher

British violinist Peter Fisher is an artist of remarkable versatility and insight who possesses a tone quality of great beauty and lyricism.

His extensive repertoire ranges from the Baroque to Jazz and, exceptionally among his generation, he has a strong affinity with the romantic music of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Equally at home in the role of soloist, chamber musician and director, Peter established the Chamber Ensemble of London in 1997, consisting of handpicked players from the leading London-based orchestras and chamber music ensembles.

Peter Fisher plays regularly with Dorothy Linell, lutenist and plucked instrument player, pianist Peter Hewitt and with the Trio Petrus piano trio. Peter has also had very successful partnerships with pianists Alvin Moisey, Michael Dussek and Nadia Lasserson.

In June 2012 Peter gave a performance (recorded in one take) on cable TV of a work by his teacher, JAROSLAV VANECEK (1920-2011): 'Spanish Rhapsody' for unaccompanied violin. Op. 9. ('To the memory of Pablo de Sarasate'). Watch this on You Tube

"Ralph Vaughan Williams' 'The Lark Ascending' is a showpiece of a special kind. On his violin, and with great sensitivity, the English soloist Peter Fisher enabled the lark to soar above the landscapes of his native country."
