  1. Goldberg Variations BWV 988 - Johann Sebastian Bach

The English harpsichordist, David Wright received no musical training as a child and taught himself to play ‘by ear’. It was not until he was 16 that he had his first piano lesson and learned to read music, later going on to study harpsichord, organ, and viola da gamba as an undergraduate at Trinity College of Music, where he won the Ella Kidney prize for early music. In 2004, he graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Music, where for two consecutive years he won the Richard the Third and Century Fund Prizes. In the same year he also won first prize in the prestigious Broadwood Harpsichord Competition - an international event held biannually at London’s Fenton House, home of the historic Benton Fletcher collection of early keyboard instruments, where he subsequently became artist in residence.

During 2006 and 2007, much of David Wright’s time has been devoted to JS Bach's Goldberg Variations (BWV 988), which he has performed extensively though out the UK and abroad. Future live performances include: Bournemouth Festival in May 2007, Dartington Summer School in July-August 2007, and Handel House Museum on the August 23, 2007. In 2007, he launched his new recording of the work.
