Since 2012, the “Singing a Song in a Foreign Land” project at the Royal College of Music has been exploring the lives and work of émigré musicians from Nazi Europe in the UK and beyond.

Together with the Gellhorn family and a team of wonderfully talented student assistants he was able to pull together the wealth of information about Peter Gellhorn in this document, which will provide much needed context information for the chamber music by Peter Gellhorn which is now available for the first time through RCM Editions.
