Born in Bari, Italy, Anna Paradiso moved to Sweden in 2006 and is today one of the most prominent harpsichord players in her adoptive country, with concerts as soloist and continuo player at home, as well as in the rest of Europe, the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Lebanon. Her previous ten recordings for BIS have received enthusiastic reviews. They include solo music by J. H. Roman, J. S. Bach and the contemporary composer Vito Palumbo, as well as baroque and modern chamber music with recorder player Dan Laurin and various ensembles. She studied harpsichord with Gordon Murray, Christophe Rousset, Enrico Baiano and Mayumi Kamata. Parallel to her solo diplomas in piano and in harpsichord, she has had an academic career as Doctor of Philosophy in classical philology. Since 2009 she has dedicated herself completely to music. In recent years she has particularly distinguished herself in rediscovering unknown Swedish music from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Through her study of original sources on original fingerings and on performance of thorough-bass, she has developed a personal style praised by the critics. In 2019, the Swedish Royal Academy of Music awarded her the prestigious Bernadotte Scholarship for a project on Neapolitan baroque music.
