Hank Knox, harpsichord and clavicytherium

Works by Jean-Henri D’Anglebert, François Couperin, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Claudio Merulo and Bernardo Storace

Hank Knox presents an overview of seventeenth-century music, guiding us from the private salons of the cardinals and citizens of the republics of Rome and Venice to the salons of Paris and Versailles.

Hailed internationally for his “colorful, kinetic performances” (All Music Guide) which “abound in vitality” (Early Music America), Hank Knox performs on harpsichord in concert halls, churches, museums, galleries and homes around the globe. A founding member of Montreal’s Arion Baroque Orchestra, with whom he has toured North and South America, Europe and Japan, Knox also regularly performs, records and tours with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Les Violons du Roy, le Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, and l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, among numerous other ensembles.

Hank Knox teaches harpsichord and continuo in the Early Music program at McGill University in Montreal, where he also conducts various instrumental and chamber music ensembles including the McGill Baroque Orchestra. A William Dawson Scholar in recognition of his achievements in Early Music, Knox held the post of Director of McGill’s Early Music program for over 20 years and was awarded the Thomas Binkley prize for an outstanding university collegium director by Early Music America in 2008. Knox continues to direct a series of Baroque operas for Opera McGill, which have included Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Lully’s Thésée, Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea and Il ritorno d’Ulisse, and Handel’s Agrippina, Giulio Cesare, Alcina, Semele, Imeneo, Radamisto and, most recently, Rinaldo.
