Harpsichordist for hire - seeking serious professional concert opportunities where music will be listened to, actively.

Able to play any of the solo and ensemble harpsichord repertoire by Bach, the Couperins, Froberger, Frescobaldi, Buxtehude, Bohm, Reincken, Dieupart, Marchand, Fischer, Kuhnau, Farnaby, Forqueray, Graupner, Purcell, and selected works by many other composers: Byrd, Philips, Scarlatti, Handel, Rameau, Chambonnieres, Platti, Haydn, other Bachs, et al.

Excellent at sight-reading and improvisation of basso continuo. Sensitive accompanist with flexibility and a fine sense of humor. Quick and intuitive learner. Able to tune for my own performances, efficiently and accurately. Doctoral degree and 30 years of experience in these professional performance skills. CDs available. Can also play clavichord, pedal harpsichord, fortepiano, and organ, but principal instrument is harpsichord.

I enjoy giving public concerts, earning extra money at it, and being taken seriously as an expert classical musician. On the side, I do writing projects (mostly music reviews and book reviews), and I'm sort of famous as "the tuning guy", but I really want to perform more music as my central way of using those skills. Thank you for any leads!
