Nicholas Parle (Harpsichord)

Born: Sydney, Australia

The Australian harpsichordist, Nicholas Parle, studied harpsichord with David Kinsela while completing a BMus degree at the University of Sydney. Upon receiving a Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Award for Young Australians in 1985, he moved to London to broaden his musical horizons, and is indebted to the many colleagues throughout the world from whom he has learnt so much. In 1989 he won the 1st Prize at the International Harpsichord Competition in Brugge, Belgium, only the 3rd time in the 30-year history of the competition that a first prize had been awarded.

Nicholas Parle appears as both a soloist and continuo player throughout Europe, Japan and Australia. Now professor of harpsichord at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, his other teaching engagements include courses in Poland, Hungary, Australia and Japan.
