CHRISTOPHER D. LEWIS

Dr Christopher D. Lewis is a harpsichordist and a Naxos recording artist.

​Originally from Rhiwbina in Wales, Christopher D. Lewis relocated to Canada in 2005 to study under Luc Beauséjour and Hank Knox at McGill University in Montréal. Here he earned a Bachelor of Music degree before next completing his Masters of Music degree at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music studying under Corey Jamason. Both degrees had a special focus on modern music for the harpsichord. He performs internationally, and has toured widely including in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, and the South Pacific.

Since 2012 he has worked for Naxos Records as a recording artist and has released four full length albums of contemporary harpsichord music, both orchestral and solo. Praise for these recordings includes being described by Gramophone magazine as “pioneering”. His fascination with the instrument began at a young age, and since then he has made it his mission to bring the modern harpsichord and the music written for it to a global audience, intent on sharing its beauty and versatility far and wide. He recently completed an Arts and Humanities Research Council and National Trust funded PhD focused on the modern British harpsichord at the University of Southampton (U.K.), and is internationally known as an authority on harpsichord in classical contemporary music/popular music, and in popular culture.

He works as a university lecturer and was recently appointed an Honorary Fellow of The Guild of Musicians and Singers.
