“Hans Werner Henze has been a lifelong influence on my work ever since I met him as a young student … our collaboration is one of the greatest inspirations for my work as a musician …” Peter has told The Violin Channel.
“I want listeners to be swept up by the emotion, the poetry, and the theatricality of this great composer’s work … its message and power is vital for our time,” he has said.
