Melisande McNabney (harpsichord)


Like the 17th-century French harpsichordists before her, Mélisande McNabney draws on the musical universe during the time of Louis XIV and Louis XV for her new album “Inspirations”, which features works by D’Anglebert, Forqueray and Rameau.

Inspired by song, the lute, the viola da gamba, and even the complete orchestra, harpsichordists of this era aimed to reproduce these sounds in their compositions and transcriptions. Like her predecessors, Melisande McNabney performs transcriptions for harpsichord.

The award-winning Mélisande McNabney plays keyboard music of all periods, on harpsichord, piano and fortepiano. McNabney received third prize at the International Competition Musica Antiqua 2015 in Bruges, Belgium. She is a graduate of the Amsterdam Conservatory, where she studied harpsichord, continuo and fortepiano with Bob van Asperen and Richard Egarr.
