Welcome to this website about the conductor and composer, Peter Gellhorn (1912-2004). It aims to help you engage with his story of his life as a musician, and in particular with his compositions. 


This website was originally created as part of Singing a Song in a Foreign Land‎, the Royal College of Music research and performance project highlighting the contribution of musicians who fled from Nazi Germany and Austria ‎to musical life in Britain and beyond. It was made possible by the Cultural Engagement Project "Exile Estates and Music Restitution - The Musical Legacy of the Conductor / Composer Peter Gellhorn" supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in 2016.

The website is now maintained by members of Peter Gellhorn's family.
