Peter Salem


Apart from writing soundtracks for tv dramas such as the hugely popular BBC series Call the Midwife, Peter is increasingly creating works for contemporary ballet.  

His first full-length ballet score was for Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire followed by scores for Camino Real (Atlanta Ballet) and SB’s The Crucible (both choreographed by Helen Pickett), Broken Wings (ENB), Frida (DNB), The Little Prince (BalletX) and Dona Peron (Ballet Hispanico). He also provided music for Helen’s dance project Home Studies, her dance film The Air Before Me and composed the music for Desire which Helen created for ABT in 2021.
