Peter Schuback was born in Täby on March 31, 1947.  

He was educated as a cellist in Stockholm, Köln and Paris. He has worked with several groups on the contemporary music scene mostly in Sweden, France and in Brasil. He taught cello and new music at the Malmö College of Music 1972-1975. Since then he is active as a freelance cellist, and as a composer. 

Schuback explores the field between interpreter and composer and has adapted a number of major orchestral works for solo cello: Beethoven’s 9 symphony, Ravel’s La Valse, Tjajkovski’s Romeo and Julia, Smetana’s Moldau etc.
