Anna Paradiso



Anna Paradiso has within a short time established herself as a harpsichordist of great individuality and character. She has given concerts not only in Europe (Scandinavia, England, Germany, France, Italy, Slovenia) but also in the USA and Japan. Anna Paradiso studied at the conservatory in Bari, Italy, where she gained solo diplomas in piano and harpsichord. Later she also studied under Gordon Murray, Christophe Rousset and Enrico Baiano, and she holds an Advanced Master’s degree in harpsichord and basso continuo from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. She also undertakes research into basso continuo and historical fingerings using original sources.

As a soloist and continuo player Anna Paradiso has appeared with many Scandinavian ensembles and orchestras. With her husband, the recorder player Dan Laurin, she has formed a duo that tours internationally and has also recorded a programme of 20th-century English sonatas for BIS [BIS-1785]. Together with Henrik Frendin (viola) and Mats Olofsson (cello) they both play in the ensemble Paradiso Musicale, whose acclaimed début recording [BIS-1895] – featuring music by Telemann and by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach – was chosen as Record of the Month by BBC Music Magazine. Anna Paradiso has also performed with musicians such as Lisa Batiashvili, François Leleux, Hidemi Suzuki and Nils-Erik Sparf. In addition she commissions new works, for instance from the Italian composer Vito Palumbo, whose works she has performed with the ensemble Norrbotten NEO.

Anna Paradiso has taught at the conservatories of Bolzano and Avellino, at Trinity College in London and the Birmingham Conservatoire, and at international courses in Europe and Japan. She has a D.Phil. in Latin and Classical Greek, and has taught at Oxford University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
