David Gordon:
2022-2023

David Gordon

Our Associate Artist for 2022-2023 was pianist, harpsichordist and composer David Gordon, who many of you will know from his numerous appearances with The Swan.

A gifted communicator and a thrilling performer, David divides his musical life between the worlds of early music and jazz, frequently combining the two. Improvisation is central to his work, whether performing with his jazz trio or as soloist/director with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, the London Chamber Orchestra or Concerto Köln.

At the harpsichord he remains respectful of its baroque origins whilst elevating its role and reimagining it for the 21st century. Renowned for his ability to shape-shift effortlessly between genres, David’s outrageously creative approach is a joy to witness, incorporating extreme spontaneity and the sculpting of otherworldly soundscapes.

In 2022-2023 we commissioned a new suite of works based on Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, which was incorporated into the Earthcycle project, a contemplation of humanity’s impact on Earth’s environment and a celebration of nature and our place within it.
