In Memoriam, Peter Corney


Here’s some personal thoughts from Brian Kemble, who has asked us to let the industry know the sad news of the passing of his much loved colleague, Peter Corney

Peter Corney has sadly died aged 68 on Saturday 7th October after a long and brave fight against cancer.

Peter was a much loved veteran of the piano business. Originally a music retailer, he joined Kemble and Co in the 1980s and worked tirelessly as sales Director until the company closed in 2009. He subsequently joined Bluthner’s in London and recently moved to Countywide Pianos.

He was a brilliant, exceptionally hard working member of our team and a personal friend. He will be sorely missed by his partner, Mark, his 2 sons, Philip and Benjamin, his wider family, all his friends and the Industry.

A JustGiving page has been set up in his honour to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support if you’d like to donate in his memory  –
