Richard Egarr, harpsichord
An eloquent advocate for early music, Richard Egarr brings a joyful sense of adventure to all his music making. Director of the Academy of Ancient Music, he appears often as guest conductor with such ensembles as the London Symphony and the Royal Concertgebouw. He displays a scholar’s perception, humor and a virtuosic flair in this program of 17th-century English keyboard masters.
