Lucy Carolan (Harpsichord)

Born: Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

The Scottish harpsichodist, Lucy Carolan, is a graduate of the Edinburgh University. She was fortunate enough to encounter the world-famous Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments while studying music at the University, and was subsequently awarded a scholarship to study harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam.

Since then Lucy Carolan has performed throughout Britain and Europe as both soloist and continuo player on virginals, harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano, in music ranging from the Dublin Virginal Manuscript to Michael Tippett. A frequent solo recitalist, she has been particularly acclaimed for her interpretations of J.S.Bach, and her repertoire includes all the major Bach harpsichord works.

Since 1991 Lucy Carolan has taught harpsichord at Birmingham Conservatoire.
