Om Peter van Tour

Peter M. van Tour, Associate Professor in Music Theory

Peter holds master's degrees in Music Pedagogy from the Conservatory of Brabant, Tilburg, Music Theory from the Royal College of Music, Stockholm, and Musicology from the University of Utrecht. His academic pursuits encompass a diverse range, including analytical studies, compositional theory, studies in eighteenth-century paleography, and modern music theory pedagogy.

In 2015, Peter earned his PhD from Uppsala University Press with his dissertation entitled "Counterpoint and Partimento: Methods of Teaching Composition in Late Eighteenth-century Naples," a work that has received international plaudits.

Co-founding the Gotland School of Music Composition in Visby, Peter collaborated with esteemed figures such as Sven-David Sandström, Per Mårtensson, and Henrik Strindberg. Following his dissertation, he served as a guest professor at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium (2016-17) and as an associate professor in Music Theory at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo from 2017 to 2020.

Renowned for his expertise in vocal counterpoint and improvisation, Peter has conducted numerous lectures and workshops at prestigious institutions worldwide, including Universität für Darstellende Kunst und Musik (AU), Luzern Hochschule für Musik (CH), Conservatorium van Amsterdam (NL), Conservatorium van Maastricht (NL), Indiana University (USA), and the Juilliard School of Music (USA), among others.

As a researcher in Italian partimento traditions, Peter frequently serves as a guest lecturer at universities and conservatories across Scandinavia and beyond.

In 2024, Peter is scheduled to deliver guest lectures at institutions such as the Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria), the Congress of the Korean Society for Music Theory in Seoul (South Korea), the 5th Biennial Conference of the Brazilian Society for Music Theory and Analysis in Salvador de Bahia (Brazil), and the International Partimento Conference “Partimento – Realizing its Potential” at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna (Austria).
