Medea Bindewald

Travelling with one's own instrument...
Medea Bindewald's remarkable double manual Blanchet copy by Keith Hill (USA, 2006) is a real eye-catcher. It has a painted soundboard, and lid and exterior are enhanced by a Chinoiserie decoration. It certainly requires a lot of dedication to travel with such an instrument, but the luxurious sound of it makes up for the effort! The instrument is located in the UK, but has been taken to Germany for Medea's recent concert tour.
Playing Kirkman on a Kirkman
Medea Bindewald recorded music by Jacob Kirkman (1746-1812), nephew of the London harpsichord maker of the same name, playing an instrument by his uncle. This picture has been taken at Finchcocks Musical Museum. More infos about the recording project coming soon!

CD Review: Jacques Duphly, Pièces de Clavecin (Coviello Classics COV 91404)

Medea Bindewald's CD of works by the French composer Jacques Duphly (with Nicolette Moonen, violin) was reviewed by Johan van Veen at musica Dei donum: "Medea Bindewald has made a representative selection [...] and delivers splendid performances. I especially like her subtle application of the notes inégales, for instance in La Forqueray which opens the programme. La Pothouin receives a quite dramatic performance." 29/06/2015
