Watch the winning performance from Sunday’s Harpsichord Competition at the Horniman


Safiya plays a Grade 6 piece by Scarlatti. Safiya studies with Lorraine Liyanage at the SE22 Piano School.

The Dulwich Piano Festival presents the Under 18s Harpsichord Competition for the first time at the Horniman Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill, South London.

The aim of the competition is to bring relevance to the music that we play by performing it on the instrument for which it was written. Our adjudicator Steven Devine says “Collections of historical instruments like this are crucial to our understanding of music and by unlocking the secrets of the instruments, we gain a deeper understanding of the music written for them.”
