Antony Peebles was educated at Westminster School and - with an exhibition in music - at Trinity College, Cambridge. After gaining his MusB degree there he studied piano with Peter Katin, Yvonne Lefébure and Jeremy Siepmann.

In 1971 he won the BBC Piano Competition with a unanimous vote from the jury and a year later the Debussy Competition in France. Since then he has maintained a very busy performing career, the main feature of this being the remarkable amount of overseas touring it has entailed.
In the UK he has played as concerto soloist with the following orchestras: London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Halle, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, BBC Welsh Symphony, City of London Sinfonia, etc. He broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and plays in smaller venues all around the country, often with the violinist John Georgiadis, with whom he formed he the Georgiadis/Peebles Duo.

He has recorded six CDs for Meridian Records: Ravel piano music, Liszt operatic fantasias and 4 discs of songs transcribed for solo piano by Liszt from Schubert, Schumann and Mendelssohn.
