Ingresso ad offerta


Marcia Hadjimarkos performs, records, and teaches on a variety of keyboard instruments from the earliest Florentine piano to its modern counterpart, with special interest in clavichords and historic pianos both grand and square. Born in the US, she now lives in France, and studied the fortepiano with Jos Van Immerseel at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique.

Highlights of her career include an 8-recital performance of the complete Haydn sonatas on several early keyboards, the commemoration of Hélène de Montgeroult’s 250th birthday at the Paris Conservatoire, a concert series on a facsimile of the Cristofori piano, song recitals with Emma Kirkby, Beth Taylor, Julianne Baird, and Jean-Paul Fouchécourt, and a clavichord concert at the Institute for Advanced Study.

Her performances are described as “imaginatively realized, full-blooded, and loving”, “brilliantly intelligent”, and “dynamic, free, and powerfully shaped”. She has played at the International Piano Festival in La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Sablé Festival, l’Arsenal de Metz, the National Music Museum, Rencontres internationales harmoniques, the Nordic Historical Keyboard Festival, the Russell, Finchcocks, and Cobbe Collections, the San Diego Early Music Society…Her recordings of Mozart Sonatas and Rondos, Haydn Sonatas, Character Pieces by C.P.E. Bach, Haydn songs & cantatas with Emma Kirkby, Viennese music with Hugo Reyne (czakan), and Schubert Dances and Sonata, have been enthusiastically received, and earned various awards including a Diapason d’Or.

Marcia enjoys working with actors and singers to co-create programs that combine words and music, such as ‘The Intimate Mozart’ (based on the Mozart family letters), ‘Entre Deux Feux’ (commemorating popular and art songs of the World War I era), and ‘Lamartine Forever’ (centered on the Romantic poet’s life and works). She plays the four-hand and two-keyboard repertoires with Brice Pauset, and is a member of L’Académie des Cosmopolites ensemble. She gives frequent master classes on historic pianos and clavichords in conservatories, museums, universities, and festivals.

Her current projects include an album of minimalist music on a late 19th-century Steinway for the Outer Marker label, and a recording of solo and chamber works by Hélène de Montgeroult on an 1817 square piano, with mezzo-soprano Beth Taylor and violinist Nicolas Mazzoleni on the Seulétoile label. Both will be released in spring 2023.
