Harpsichord

Donald Nicolson

Listed among Australia’s best classical performers by the ABC in 2019, New Zealand-born harpsichordist, organist, synth artist, composer and arranger, Donald Nicolson is a prominent figure in performance and research of the music of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe, and in high demand as a keyboardist, composer, and arranger. A Ph.D. in Musicology at the University of Melbourne in 2018, and an avid reader of the classics and ancient rhetoric, Donald teaches historically-informed performance practice at the University of Melbourne and gives regular talks and lectures on music and history. Donald maintains a busy performing schedule in the early music scene and on the orchestral platform, with Van Diemen's Band, Latitude 37, Pinchgut Opera, the MSO and ACO among many.
