Bio

Pianist Peter Cartwright has performed at numerous festivals and concert venues in South Africa, as well as in the UK, USA, Zimbabwe and Botswana. He holds a strong commitment to performing South African music, and has recorded works by Andile Khumalo, Jeanne Zaidel-Rudolph, Carlo Mombelli, Conrad Asman, Hendrik Hofmeyr, Musa Nkuna, Alexander Johnson, and Merryl Neille. Recent projects include the African Bird album with Flautist Khanyisile Mthetwa which won two 2022 South African Music Awards for best classical/instrumental album and best newcomer, and an album titled The Dusk of Day – a collection of African art songs from around the continent. In 2021 Peter was the pianist for the world premiere video recording of Carl Czerny’s Nonette for piano and chamber ensemble. He recently returned from an acclaimed recital of works by British composers at the English Music Festival in Dorchester-on-Thames with violinist Rupert Marshall-Luck.

As a solo and collaborative pianist, Peter has performed at festivals including the National Arts Festival, the Wakkerstroom Music Festival, the FynArt Festival, the 969 Festival, Jazz and Classical Encounters, as well as for various music societies and university concert series. His recordings and performances have been broadcast on local media including Classic FM, RSG, and SABC.

Peter currently serves on the practical staff of the Music Department at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. He holds a PhD from the same institution where he studied with Prof Malcolm Nay and Pauline Nossel.
