Faculty of Music

Peter Asimov

We are delighted to welcome Dr Peter Asimov as a new Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Faculty from May 2022.  A former PhD student in the Faculty, Peter is currently a Fondation Wiener-Anspach Fellow working with Prof. Valérie Dufour at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.

Peter’s project focuses on the career and artistry of Yvonne Loriod (1924–2010)—a leading pianist and pedagogue whose contributions to twentieth-century French music have been hitherto overshadowed and undervalued—with the goal of modelling a relational historiography of modernism driven from the frontlines of musical performance, whether on the concert stage, the recording studio, or the classroom.
