LOCAL musician, David Wright, brings his performance to his home town of Wisbech.
For the first time in Wisbech, David will be performing with Zarah Hible, Mezzo Soprano, in their show of visual and virtuosic, stylish and seductive, contemporary mix of baroque music.
Join David and Zarah in their performance of “Trills and Frills”, on April 27 at Elme Hall, Wisbech with all proceeds for Tapping House Hospice.
David, who was born in Bethnal Green in the East End of London, is a renowned harpsichordist, playing all over Europe as a prominent member of Red Priest.
He received no musical training as a child. His interest in music began after the death of his father, when he was nine, through subsequent involvement in the local church.
It was there that he discovered the piano and organ and taught himself to play ‘by ear’, nurturing a love of the music of Bach and Mozart. At the age of sixteen he had his first piano lesson and learned to read music, later going on to study harpsichord at Trinity College of Music, where he won the Ella Kidney prize for early music, and graduated with honours. As a soloist and accompanist David works regularly with some of the world’s leading ensembles and musicians.
Zarah is a regular recitalist at Handel House and has performed for masterclasses with Sarah Connolly, Dame Emma Kirkby, Brindley Sherrat, Nicole Tibbels and Brad Cohen. She is well known on the operatic stage and has toured with the Phoenix Community Touring Opera.
