Principal bassoonist with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since 2008, Peter Whelan was described by the Philadelphia Enquirer as ‘an absolute master of fleet facility with a solidly plush tone of wondrous immediacy’. He is in constant demand as a soloist and chamber musician and has received glowing responses from audiences and critics alike, including a Gramophone Award for his recording of Vivaldi bassoon concertos with La Serenissima in 2010. Peter is joined by pianist and fellow Scottish Chamber Orchestra member, Simon Smith, for this lunchtime recital.
