Peter Scott Lewis composes in a number of genres, from concerto to chamber music to vocal music.

The poetic character of his music belies its formality, though it could also sound improvisatory. Lewis examined with composers such as for example Andrew Imbrie, Jacob Druckman, Nicholas Maw, and Morton Subotnick. He provides performed being a guitarist, with Alirio Diaz and Carlos Barbosa-Lima as his instructors on that device. Lewis’ music continues to be commissioned and performed by conductors Kent Nagano and Alan Gilbert, guitarist David Tanenbaum, the Chamber Music Culture of Lincoln Middle, and many more. His works have already been documented on the brand new Albion and Naxos brands, aswell as his very own label, Lapis Isle.
