LILLIAN GORDIS, clavicembalo

Lillian Gordis (b. 1992, Berkeley, California) discovered the harpsichord at the age of 9 and began studying first with Katherine Roberts Perl and then with Arthur Haas. At Pierre Hantaï’s encouragement, she moved to France at 16 to pursue studies with him; she was his only private student from 2009-2013. She also worked with Bertrand Cuiller for several years. She simultaneously attended various conservatories, including the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where she benefited from the mentorship of Pedro Memelsdorff. She pursued a master’s degree in performance and research at the Sorbonne-PSPBB (Bibiane Lapointe & Catherine Deutsch), for which she researched and prepared a new critical edition of John Bull’s In Nomines (2016-2018).
She was an invited soloist on France Musique’s radio show, Génération Jeunes Interprètes, and regularly performs in festivals such as Sinfonia en Périgord, Printemps de Lanvellec, Jeunes Talents, Paris Clavecin Festival, Clavecin en Fête, Festival de Richelieu, Voyage dans l’Hiver (Moulin d’Andé), Petits Concerts dans les Copeaux, L’Art de la Fugue and Oude Muziek Utrecht Fringe, and at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Muziekgebouw aan’t IJ, Museo Musica Bologna and MusicSources Berkeley. She has been invited to play continuo with the OFJ Baroque 2017 (Rinaldo Alessandrini) and the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris under the direction of Giuliano Carmignola and Fabio Biondi with Vivica Genaux and Sonia Prina. She is a four-time laureate of the Fondation Royaumont (2013, 2015-2017), where she has worked with among others Amandine Beyer, Sophie Gent and Raphaël Pichon.
Lillian performs regularly with her friends Jérôme Hantaï, Varoujan Doneyan, Bertrand Cuiller, Skip Sempé and Johanna Bartz, and in 2017 founded an ensemble, VOIX OBLIGÉES, which is dedicated to works for obbligato harpsichord of Johann Sebastian Bach and JeanPhilippe Rameau. Her first solo recording, devoted to Scarlatti sonatas, will be released by Paraty (Harmonia Mundi-PIAS) in 2019.
Lillian Gordis is supported by the Fondation d’entreprise Safran.
