Peter Sheppard Skærved is the dedicatee of well over 200 works for violin, from a wide range of composers - indeed from Hans Werner Henze and David Matthews, to Jörg Widmann and Sadie Harrison. He has appeared as concerto artist and chamber recitalist, and has given hundreds of unaccompanied recitals in over 30 countries.

He has one of the broadest discographies of any violinist, stretching from pioneering recordings of Michael Haydn concerti, through Beethoven to the first recording of the original version of George Rochberg's concerto, recorded under the composer's supervision in Germany and contemproary works by composers such as Elliott Schwartz and Paul Pellay.

Peter is also the leader of the Kreutzer Quartet, violinist of Ensemble Triolog (Munich) and Longbow and the long-term duo partner of pianist Aaron Shorr. He is currently a Research Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in London.
