Goldberg Variations – Nathaniel Mander

Nathaniel Mander is a harpsichordist and fortepianist whose deep love of music and passion for the 18th century have led him to devote himself to the keyboard instruments of the time.

He will be performing one of J.S. Bach’s most enduring masterpieces, The Goldberg Variations, BMV988,having recently made an exquisite recording of the work on the Chronos label. This promises to be a very special and magical evening

Please note: there will be no interval during this performance

About Nathaniel

At a young age Nathaniel was entranced by the unique sound of the harpsichord and was inspired to take up the instrument. He began his education with Richard Lester in Cirencester, where he also gave his first recitals. Nathaniel moved to London in 2007 to train at the Royal Academy of Music with Carole Cerasi.

In 2010 Nathaniel won first prize at the Early Keyboard Ensemble Competition at Fenton House. The following year he took first prize at the 10th Broadwood Harpsichord Competition, and later won 2nd place at the Gianni Gambi Harpsichord competition in Pesaro (Italy), the Accompanist’s Prize for the John Kerr Award at Finchcocks and the Harold Samuel Bach Solo Keyboard Prize at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2014 Nathaniel held the Linda Hill Junior Fellowship at the Royal College of Music for two consecutive years.

He later travelled to Paris and Rome in order to study with Béatrice Martin, Elisabeth Joyé, Skip Sempe and Pierre Hantai. Along with Carole Cerasi, who deeply influenced his sound and approach to the instrument, these remain his most important musical influences.

Nathaniel performs regularly in France after being invited by Marc Minkowski to join his celebrated orchestra Les Musiciens du Louvre in performances of their all-Rameau programme. Last summer he joined them for the opera season in Paris performing at the Palais Garnier in performances of Rameau’s opera Platée, a performance of which was broadcast live on France TV.

As solo recitalist Nathaniel has performed internationally a wide ranging repertoire from the Elizabethan Virginalists, through the sonatas of Mozart and Haydn, and right up to the music of Chopin and Schubert on fortepiano. He is particularly known for his expressive and virtuosic performances of the 18th century French masters and the music of Mozart.

Following the release of a new series of teaching videos that Nathaniel created for the Japanese Early Music organisation ‘Académie de Cour’, he has been invited to perform in Japan in 2024.

This year Nathaniel is artist in residence at Restoration House and this autumn will perform a series of 3 recitals on harpsichord, square piano and fortepiano, each an original from a different century.


His debut solo recording with ICSM records, a recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations on his Andrew Garlick harpsichord, was released in 2022 to great acclaim. Prior to this he recorded a disk of 18th century French repertoire on the beautiful Dragon harpsichord at Raynham Hall in Norfolk: ‘The 18th century French salon’. As continuo player he has also recorded several disks of chamber music and a CD with La Nuova Musica. Nathaniel recently recorded a harpsichord concerto composed for him by British composer Barry Mills with the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra.
