David Pollock

Harpsichord Tutor

d.pollock@chi.ac.uk

David was inspired to take up historical performance because of a long-standing love for the music of J.S.Bach, and came to specialize in the harpsichord, winning the Croft Early Music First Prize at the Royal Academy of Music in 1991. 

Since then he has appeared frequently at prestigious venues across the UK and abroad as recitalist, accompanist and concerto soloist. 

Solo recordings include ‘The French Harpsichord’ and ‘O Mistris Myne: 150 years of English virginals music’ (LIR). 

He is harpsichordist in Duo Dorado which has recorded music by William Croft (CRD), followed by the premiere recording of the complete violin sonatas and harpsichord solos of Daniel Purcell: ‘The Unknown Purcell’ (CHANDOS). 

He also plays with The Parnassian Ensemble which, continuing the theme of recording rare early c18th English music for the first time, released ‘A Noble Entertainment – Music from Queen Anne’s London’ (AVIE).
