David Wright

David Wright has established himself as a prominent figure in the early music world. He was an almost entirely self taught musician before gaining a scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where he won several prizes, including the International Broadwood Competition, and graduated with distinction. He has worked with some of the world’s leading musicians including Emma Kirkby, James Bowman and Steven Varcoe, and performed as a soloist with many groups of international renown. He has directed numerous concerts from the harpsichord, including the first modern performance of Arne’s The Blind Beggar of Bethnel Green, and is guest conductor to several orchestras on the continent. Much of David’s time in recent years has been devoted to performing the Goldberg Variations by J. S. Bach, which he recorded in 2007 and has since toured extensively. With a vast amount of television and radio broadcasts to his credit, David continues to pursue a busy and varied career as a harpsichordist and became a permanent member of Red Priest in January 2011.
