David Wright (Harpsichord)

The Goldberg Variations – J.S.Bach

David Wright David Wright is a musician of international acclaim who specialises in early keyboard instruments. Originally from London’s East End, David was entirely self taught as a child until his late teens, he then went on to study at the Royal College of Music where he was the winner of numerous international competitions and prizes, most notably the Broadwood Harpsichord Competition. He pursues an extremely busy career as soloist, chamber musician and continuo player in orchestras and opera companies, recently recording with The Academy of Ancient Music. With an extensive discography to his credit, recent collaborations have included recordings with Tasmin Little, Julian Lloyd Webber, composer Debbie Wiseman (in the sound track to the BBC series Woolf Hall), the English Concert, Academy of Ancient Music  and concerts with Ema Kirkby and James Bowman. After recording the monumental Goldberg Variations in 2007 David spent much of his time touring as a soloist until joining the blockbuster group Red Priest who now occupy most of his time with a busy international concert diary from America to the Far East. David has more recently been working with Joshua Bell and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields both as a modern pianist and harpsichordist. When not touring, David enjoys working on his crumbling Georgian house in Cambridgeshire which he shares with 9 harpsichords, 2 clavichords, 2 square pianos, 3 chamber organs and a cat called Jeremy.
