Joyce Lindorff has performed throughout the U.S., Europe, Russia, Japan and China, receiving solo recitalist awards from the Pro Musicis Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Her performances have met with rave reviews, including The New York Times, “brilliant music, brilliantly played"; San Francisco Chronicle, “that rare artist who plays the keyboard as a fine Lieder singer singing"; and Philadelphia Inquirer, “dazzling technical mastery.” She has performed with the early music ensembles Hesperus, Tempesta di Mare, Newberry Consort, Charbonnier Viol Ensemble and the Waverly Consort. Based in New York for many years, she performed as keyboardist with the New York Philharmonic, Orchestra of St. Luke’s and New York Chamber Symphony, and was a teaching-artist for the Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts in Education. Lindorff began her teaching career as a Mellon Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Fellow at Cornell University, and later lived in China with her family for several years. She held Fulbright Professorships at the Xi’An Conservatory of Music and at National Sun Yat-Sen University in Kaohsiung, and taught harpsichord and performance practice on the faculties of Hong Kong Baptist University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University and the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. Lindorff is an honorary professor at the Shanghai Conservatory, where she started a harpsichord program in 1991. Her research on European music in 17th- and 18th-century China has been widely published, appearing in U.S., European and Chinese journals. Her Chinese language Baroque Keyboard Performance Practice Anthology (巴洛克键盘音乐演奏传统) was recently published in Beijing, in collaboration with Dr. Zhu Di, Professor of Keyboard at the China Conservatory, where she is also an honorary professor. Lindorff has recorded both early and contemporary harpsichord music for the Titanic, Centaur, CRI, Serenus, Digitech, Paladino, Affetto and BCM&D labels. Her current research and performance focuses on the harpsichord and music of George Washington’s family, in the collections at Mount Vernon.
