Peter Thorne (b. 1955) has been composing music since the age of about 12. He read music at Oxford and the UEA, where he took a masters degree. Over the years he has written in many different styles and genres but most recently he has been writing for wind instruments and piano. His music often features influences from various kinds of jazz and pop and is often colourful and rhythmic.
