Harpsichord  Recordings

A Chicago-based pianist and harpsichordist, Andrew Rosenblum is passionate about exploring great pieces of music from across every period of composition. As a harpsichordist, he won second prize in both the 2018 Leipzig International Bach Competition and the 2017 Prague Spring International Music Competition. An experienced collaborator, Rosenblum has been on the staff of the Chicago Symphony Chorus, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, Cleveland Institute of Music, and Northwestern University, and has performed with the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra, Collegium 1704, Music of the Baroque Orchestra, Haymarket Opera, Third Coast Baroque, and Three Notch'd Road. He is a member of the Harpsichord and Piano Faculty of the Heifetz International Music Institute.  

"His beautiful shaping of phrases, his sense of color and inflection, his incisive rhythmic impulse, plus his fabulous technique all combined to help us figure out and learn this new score. We highly recommend Andrew Rosenblum as a fabulous pianist and a musician of depth and integrity."
