Jean-Guihen Queyras is one of the finest cellists performing today. His recordings of the complete Suites for solo cello by Bach are widely regarded as the best since Pablo Casals's recordings in the 1930s. As a soloist, he has performed with many of the world’s great orchestras, including the Philharmonia, Orchestre de Paris, Philadelphia, Tonhalle Zürich, Leipzig Gewandhaus, among others. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in New York in March 2004 and his BBC Proms debut to unanimous acclaim in 2008.

As a recitalist, French-born pianist Alexandre Tharaud has performed across the world: Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Opéra de Versailles, Cologne Philharmonie, Prague Rudofinum, Royal Albert Hall and Wigmore Hall in London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, John F. Kennedy Centre Washington D.C., and the Vienna Musikverein.

Peterhouse is the oldest of the constituent colleges in the University of Cambridge.  It was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, on its current site close to the centre of the City.

The Peterhouse Theatre was built in 1883 to designs by one of the architectural masters of the Victorian era, Basil Champneys (1842-1935), whose other buildings include Newnham College and the Old Divinity School in Cambridge. Inspired by Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza (1580-85), the fine acoustics and intimate atmosphere of the Peterhouse Theatre make it the finest venue for chamber music in Cambridge, and one of the top three such venues in the whole country.
