John Dowdall, Red Cedar Chamber Music:

I find Peter's chamber music totally engaging. His in-depth knowledge of the classical style of composition and his background as a Hollywood film score composer combine to give his music a freshness and energy that is intellectually satisfying and viscerally stimulating.

As a guitarist, I am particularly appreciative of his ability to weave the guitar into the melodic and contrapuntal texture of a piece while retaining an ease of playability for the guitarist — not an easy task for any composer.

Guitarist and Former Artistic Director of Red Cedar Chamber Music

Joe Harnell, film composer and pops arranger:

Peter Bloesch was a student in my class in the 'Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television' program at the USC School of Music. In that setting, I was able to closely observe his exceptional talents, his passionate approach to music, and his ever-positive attitude.  

And over the years, as I've kept in close contact with him and his various music projects, I've become only more and more impressed with this remarkably talented composer and what he has created. His creations are imaginative, compelling, and accessible.

He has an incredible background in every area of music — pops arranging, film music, and music for the concert stage — and puts all of these genres to good use, coming up with a style that is all his own.

I consider Peter to be one of the most gifted composers I have ever associated with, and I always look forward to seeing what piece of music he comes up with next!
