Feder, Lorenzo

The Toccate e Corrente by Michelangelo Rossi (1601/2-1656), published in Rome in 1657, is characterized by an exuberant richness of ideas and surprising twists and turns, further spiced by a bold use of chromaticism that pushes the limits of tonality. Lorenzo Feder plays the pieces on an exquisite instrument inspired by Bartolomeo Stefanini (1694). Lorenzo Feder, born in Schio (Italy) in 1980, started studying piano at the age of 8 with Renato Maioli. After his piano diploma (2000), he studied harpsichord with Patrizia Marisaldi at the Conservatory in Vicenza. He was the recipient of the Huygens Programme scholarship from the Dutch government, after which he took postgraduate studies at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague with Ton Koopman, Tini Mathot and Patrick Ayrton. He performs as a soloist and continuo player on harpsichord and organ in international festivals throughout Europe and Mexico playing with soloists like Emma Kirkby, Frank Theuns, Michael Chance, Monica Huggett and with the baroque ensembles "Il Tempio Armonico" (Verona) and "I Musicali Affetti" (Vicenza).
