Menno van Delft

Menno van Delft – born in 1963 in Amsterdam, Menno van Delft studied harpsichord, organ and musicology in Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. 

In 1988 Menno van Delft won the clavichord prize at the C.Ph.E. Bach Competition in Hamburg and subsequently made his debut at the Holland Festival Early Music Utrecht. He has given concerts and master classes throughout Europe, Japan and the U.S. and has made numerous CD recordings as well as many appearances on radio and television. 

In 2004 Teknon released the first in a series of recordings on important historical clavichords featuring Van Delft playing sonatas and variations by J.G. Müthel on the 1763 J.A. Hass clavichord from the Russell Collection in Edinburgh. A recording on instruments from the Musical Instrument Museum in Berlin will soon be released. For Resonus Classics, Van Delft has made two recordings of works on two harpsichords in coöperation with Guillermo Brachetta: Divine Noise (with music by Rameau, F. Couperin and Gaspard le Roux) and Concerto (with J.S. Bach’s Concerto in C major for two harpsichords). In May 2018 the long awaited recording of Bach’s 6 keyboard Partitas came out, recorded on the beautiful Hoffmann clavichord from 1784 from the Cobbe collection at Hatchlands near London, England. Menno van Delft teaches harpsichord, clavichord and basso continuo at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (formerly the Sweelinck Conservatorium) and the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg.
