Speechless - 2012

Peter's first CD, Speechless is a collection of his orchestral music.  The music is fresh and immediate, with sections of chamber-like clarity, layered sounds (à la Charles Ives), and mesmerising ostinati.  Sometimes there is just a whisper of sound but then a full-blooded climax is probably just around the corner!  There are solos for cello, sax, and mezzo-soprano.

Loquacious - 2019

Peter's second CD, Loquacious is a collection of his chamber music.  From music for solo piano, to a string quartet written after the Barcelona terror attack, to Peter's first jazz-inspired track, to songs for tenor and piano this is a truly beautiful and compelling recording.  No musicians were harmed in the making of this CD.

Reviews of Speechless

"A project of skill and wit ...admirable line-up of musicians ... moves smoothly from sharp statements of powerful intent to balancing passages of sweetness." - The Musician

"A new and special CD ... nicely varied. Fender has no truck with modernism; he writes music which he hopes is "accessible to both players and audience but which are also compositionally interesting", and this first CD of his orchestral works fully achieves that objective. The music is recorded to a high standard." - Peter Woolf, Musical Pointers
