    Richard Egarr (born August 7, 1963)

    Richard Egarr.jpg

    Egarr has been the director of the London-based Academy of Ancient Music since 2006, when he succeeded Christopher Hogwood. He also performs and records on all types of keyboard instruments, but is most well known as a harpsichordist. After completing his formal education as an organ scholar at Clare College, Cambridge, he studied harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt. Egarr is one of the contemporary harpsichordists who has recorded Bach’s complete Well Tempered Clavier and Goldberg Variations. He also collaborated with violinist Andrew Manze to record violin sonata cycles of Bach, Händel, and Mozart. Egarr is scheduled to depart the AAM in 2021 in order to become music director of the San Francisco-based Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale. He is married to keyboardist Alexandria Nepomnyashchaya with whom he has two young daughters.

    Personal Connection: I love harpsichord music. About a year ago, I heard a program on WFMT-Chicago that featured Richard Egarr. I was aware of him before that, but his solo harpsichord playing on the program impressed me greatly and he is now one of the living harpsichordists whose work I listen to most (the others being Ton Koopman, Jory Vinikour, and Bob van Asperen). Egarr’s 2018 album on Linn Records, “One Byrde in Hande,” a carefully curated set of works by William Byrd, is the kind of CD I most like to collect these days: beautifully recorded, produced, and packaged, with extensive notes by the artist.
