We were delighted that the Horniman Museum and Gardens hosted the Dulwich Piano Festival’s Harpsichord Competition on their beautiful 1772 Kirckman competition. Steven Devine adjudicated the competition and performed a short recital of music by Handel.
Steven Devine has performed all over the world as a harpsichord soloist (his recent Chandos recording of the Goldberg Variations was described by Gramophone Magazine as “one of the best”), he is a highly sought-after continuo player with permanent positions with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Classical Opera and London Baroque and directs repertoire with a wide range of groups with repertoire from 16th century polyphony to new commissions.
Thank you to Mimi Waitzman and the team and the museum for help making the event possible. We look forward to returning in 2015 and introducing this wonderful instrument to young musicians.
Entries are now open for the 2015 Dulwich Piano Festival:
