John Henry


For thirty years John Henry has been widely acclaimed for his live and recorded performances in his country and in the US. While perhaps best known for his interpretations of French harpsichord music, he performs from an extensive repertoire on other keyboard instruments, and recently presented an introduced recital at the Finchcocks Festival on harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano.

Teaching Experience

John Henry regularly conducts master classes and delivers lectures on a wide range of subjects for schools, colleges and universities. Before joining the staff at Trinity College of Music in 1990, he was visiting senior research fellow in music at Westfield College, University of London. At Trinity Laban, as well as being harpsichord professor, he continues his pioneering performance practice for pianists.


" first and foremost for the romantic feeling behind it, and the imaginative registration and fastidious ornamentation through which he made the music speak."

The Times

"As a good-humoured, informative and entertaining presenter of a programme, he has no peer."

Music and Musician

"...passionate involvement in the music and his fertile imagination."
