Enrico Baiano (harpsichord)
Neapolitan harpsichordist Enrico Baiano is considered one of the most interesting artists on the early music scene. He has performed at the most renowned early music festivals; his repertoire ranges from 16th to 21st century.
After graduating in piano and composition at the Conservatorio S. Pietro a Majella, Naples, he specialised in harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano with Emilia Fadini at the Conservatorio G. Verdi, Milan.
Enrico Baiano has recorded several solo recordings for Symphonia (now partly re-released by PANCLASSIC) and for Stradivarius, which have won him several international prizes such as the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, Diapason d’Or, Choc de la Musique and Platte des Monats. The First Book of J. S. Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier (played on harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano) will shortly be published by LIMEN MUSIC.
He has taken part in two documentary films directed by Francesco Leprino: 'Un gioco ardito' on Domenico Scarlatti and ‘Sul nome B.a.c.h.’ on J. S. Bach.
He has written a Harpsichord Method published by Ut Orpheus (translated into English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese) and has co-authored with Marco Moiraghi a book on the sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti published by L.I.M.
Enrico Baiano is Professor of harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano at the Conservatorio Domenico Cimarosa, Avellino.
