Peter Gach

Dr. Peter Gach is a pianist of wide-ranging repertoire and interests. He performs pieces from the classical repertoire, from the Complete Second Volume of the Well-Tempered Clavier of Bach to the First Piano Sonata of Charles Ives. Of Polish ancestry, and fluent in Polish, he studied at the Warsaw Conservatory, the same one that Chopin attended. He has performed the works of Karol Szymanowski (pronounced ‘shimanofskee’), considered to be the greatest composer from Poland since Chopin. Peter also specializes in contemporary works for the piano, often commissioning new works. He recently retired from Palomar College, where he served as Artist in Residence and Chairperson of the Performing Arts Department. He continues to concertize extensively.  http://petergach.com/
