In that same year he was appointed Professor of viola da gamba and baroque cello at the Royal Academy of Music – then the youngest ever professor in the Academy's history. Four years later Peter embarked upon a two year period of study at Indiana University, taking lessons and masterclasses with such legendary figures as Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, Janos Starker, Franco Gulli, Rostislav Dubinsky and Paul Tortelier, before returning from America to study further with William Pleeth. Peter's orchestral career has earned him principal positions with the English String Orchestra, Brighton Philharmonic and Oxford Philharmonic. In addition to his orchestral work Peter is keenly interested in chamber music, having been a founder member of the Rogeri Trio and for twelve years a member of the Bochmann Quartet. Chamber music collaborators have included Nigel Kennedy, Robert Cohen, Rafael Walfisch and Natalie Klein amongst many others. This year will see the release of his recording of Mendelssohn's Octet with Peter on first cello and Maxim Vengerov on first violin. Peter plays a cello by G.B.Rogeri dated 1697
