Micaela Schmitz (originally from the U.S.) specialises in early keyboard instruments, including harpsichord, fortepiano and clavichord. She earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts (on 18th century keyboard music) under Arthur Haas at the Eastman School of Music, in Rochester, New York. This was preceded by a first degree in Music at U.C. Berkeley, and a Masters in choral conducting. She spent two years studying with Jacques Ogg and Bart van Oort at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague on a Rotary scholarship. In 2002, she was awarded a bursary to study with Penelope Cave at the Dartington International Summer School. As a soloist she received acclaim for her performance of Bach's Goldberg variations, which features an entertaining pre-concert talk to help audience members appreciate the masterpiece. Other programmes include 'The English-Dutch Connection', 'For the Sun King', 'Dancing in the Isles', and 'The Fantastic and the Avant-Garde'. She has performed with Laurence Cummings, Paul Simmonds (duo keyboard repertoire); recorder player Cathryn Dew; gambist Jacqui Robertson-Wade, and baroque flutist Clare Beesley as the ensemble Terza Prattica. She edits Harpsichord and Fortepiano and gives workshops to a range of ages. See
