Peter Gregson is a cellist and composer "working at the forefront of the new music scene" (The New Yorker). He has premiered works by composers including Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Joby Talbot, Gabriel Prokofiev, and Steve Reich; he also collaborates with many leading film composers, including Lorne Balfe, Alex Heffes, Michael Price, as well as many others. His score for Alan Rickman's 'A Little Chaos' was nominated for the Public Choice Award at the 2015 World Soundtrack Awards, and was Vanity Fair's score of the year.
Cellist and composer Peter Gregson is a man obsessed with sonic frontiers: "The job of the musician is to create stuff that's relevant to his time," he says. "You can get it wrong if all you do is stubbornly stick to your guns. I want to be able to adapt to changing landscapes." In Bach Recomposed, Gregson translates a landmark of the cello repertoire into his own unique musical language. The album is the latest addition to DG's lauded series that includes Max Richter's Vivaldi Recomposed.
