Peter Bradley-Fulgoni studied first in England with Beryl Chempin and then at the Purcell School, followed by the Royal College of Music with Kendall Taylor and Phyllis Sellick, where he achieved the top grade for piano performance. Not long after he became the winner of the Bromsgrove Festival’s International Young Musician’s Platform. He undertook postgraduate work with Alexander Kelly of the Royal Academy of Music and took part in masterclasses with Edith Vogel and Sidney Harrison. He studied in London with Andrzej Esterhazy (a pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus), in Italy with Bruno Mezzena (a pupil of Arturo Benedetti-Michelangeli) and in Moscow with Mikhael Murach (a pupil of Vera Gornastaeva). Peter, throughout his career, won numerous prizes and awards, including the F. Neglia International Piano Competition and was also awarded a ‘Diploma of Honour’ for two years running at the Maria Canals International Piano Competition, as well as gaining a significant mention by Paul Badura-Skoda at the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition. Peter made his Wigmore Hall debut after winning the Peter Morrison prize, a competition organised under the auspices of the Incorporated Society of Musicians. Subsequent engagements included recitals and concerto performances throughout Europe together with frequent broadcasts in the UK for BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, Classic FM TV, Thames Television and also in Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, Malaysia, China and in the Ukraine where he gave masterclasses as well as performances at the Lviv Conservatory of Music in the Virtuosi International Music Festival. Whilst based in Italy Peter was selected by Carlo Maria Giulini and Marcello Abbado to play at the conservatory of Santa Cecilia in Rome in a concert series organised by A.GI.MUS. (The Association of Italian Young Musicians). In 2000 he played at Trinity College Cambridge and at Balliol College, Christchurch College and St Edmund Hall Oxford. In 2001 he played at St Martin-in the-Fields, London, as part of the Pianists of the World series. Peter’s repertoire ranges between different periods and styles, from the forty-eight preludes and fugues of the ‘Well-Tempered Clavier’ of J S Bach, the thirty-two piano sonatas of Beethoven to Boulez and Di Gesu, including many obscure gems from the western canon, such as works by Domenico Zipoli and Robert Gerhard. His CD of Brahms piano music on the Altamira label received excellent critical acclaim as have all his subsequent recordings: an album of Schumann piano music for Delphian Records, followed by an album of Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto and Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Sinfonia of Leeds on the Foxglove Audio label. Peter released a DVD on the “Sound Techniques” label for Classic FM TV which was launched in 2007. Peter is recognised as an inspirational teacher also giving piano and chamber music masterclasses. In September 2003 he became part of the Ashworth Trio to give the World Premiere of the Alun Hoddinott Horn Trio. In the summer of 2007 he performed at the Skrjabin Museum in Moscow. In 2008 Peter gave a concert tour of the Ukraine as a recitalist and soloist with the Lviv Philharmonic together with masterclasses, organised by the Lviv Philharmonic Society as well as performing at the Sviatoslav Richter Memorial Apartment in Moscow under the auspices of the Pushkin Museum and for the Moscow State University.
