At just 14 years old, Vassilis Varvaresos won First Prize in the coveted YCA International Auditions in 1998, and has since gone on to perform internationally in such halls as Zurich's Tonhalle, Vienna's Musikverein and Amsterdam's Concertgebouw. He represented Greece at the 2008 Olympics, and, following his debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, he was invited to perform for President Barack Obama at the White House. The 2017-18 season has seen the launch of his new album with APARTE records.

"...Varvaresos is a young master on the rise...” Washington Post

"Varvaresos not only has a natural yet finely honed technique, it springs as one with the wide scope of profound musicianship. Varvaresos engaged his audience with a performance that sizzled from start to finish.” New York Concert Review

Peterhouse is the oldest of the constituent colleges in the University of Cambridge.  It was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, on its current site close to the centre of the City.

The Peterhouse Theatre was built in 1883 to designs by one of the architectural masters of the Victorian era, Basil Champneys (1842-1935), whose other buildings include Newnham College and the Old Divinity School in Cambridge. Inspired by Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza (1580-85), the fine acoustics and intimate atmosphere of the Peterhouse Theatre make it the finest venue for chamber music in Cambridge, and one of the top three such venues in the whole country.
