Dr. Claudio Di Veroli

Born in Buenos Aires, he studied piano, woodwinds and later the harpsichord under Colin Tilney in London and Hubert Bédard in Paris.
With a PhD in Mathematics from Imperial College, back in Argentina he introduced the authentic harpsichords, building a double French reviewed as the best instrument in South America.
His research and writings on early instruments and performance have been endorsed by Gustav Leonhardt, Igor Kipnis, John Barnes, Patrizio Barbieri and Fred Sturm. They include four favourably reviewed books and several papers. He has been Professor of Harpsichord and examiner of Organ at the Conservatorio Nacional in Buenos Aires, and has performed both instruments in different countries, with favourable reviews. In the Bach-year 1985 he premiered the performance of J.S. Bach’s harpsichord concertos using his reconstruction of Bach’s fingerings. He relocated to Ireland in 2001. Recent teaching practices include masterclasses in different countries.
