Peter Willison studied with Douglas Cameron at The Royal Academy of Music where he won the Suggia Scholarship to study with Paul Tortelier. He became principal cello of the LSO when Neville Marriner was a principal violinist and they undertook chamber music engagements together. When Howard composed his famous score for ‘The Snowman’ in 1982 he asked Peter to create a hand-picked orchestra with Jack Rothstein as leader, Kenneth Essex as principal viola and himself as principal cellist. Such was the quality of this orchestra that it was offered the cherished brand-name ‘Sinfonia of London’, which Peter has led and managed ever since.
