Sir Peter Maxwell Davies

Celebrated English composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies has passed away from leukemia – aged 81.

One of England’s foremost composers, he wrote more than 300 works – including symphonies and operas.

He was knighted in 1987 and in 2004 became a ‘Master of the Queen’s Music’ – a title considered to be the musical equivalent of the poet laureate.

Our condolences are with his family, friends, colleagues and students.
