David Pollock

David Pollock was inspired to take up the harpsichord because of a long-standing love for the music of J S Bach. Since winning the Croft Early Music First Prize at the Royal Academy of Music he has appeared frequently at prestigious venues across the UK and abroad. His solo recordings of French and English music have received international critical acclaim.

Fascinated by the creative possibilities of basso continuo, with its potential for varied improvisatory colours, he is harpsichordist for Duo Dorado and The Parnassian Ensemble. Contemporary music also interests David and he has performed works written specially for him by Colin Hand, Robert Page and Gavin Stevens.

David makes a return visit to Dartmouth for this Festival concert in St John the Baptist Catholic Church, offering a popular mixed programme to include pieces by Purcell, Bach, Scarlatti plus one or two rarities. The emphasis is on appeal, and tunefulness.

Full details of timings can be found in the official Programme or Lanyard.
