Harpsichordist Nathaniel Mander began his studies with Richard Lester before moving to London in 2009 to train with Carole Cerasi at the Royal Academy of Music where he graduated with first class honours. He is winner of the 10th Broadwood solo harpsichord competition (2011) and the Early Keyboard Ensemble Competition at Fenton House (2010).
His most important musical influences have been from Elisabeth Joyé, Skip Sempe, Pierre Hantai and most profoundly, Carole Cerasi, who has deeply influenced his physical sound and approach to the instrument.
Nathaniel gave his debut London recital for the British Harpsichord Society at Handel House in 2011 and his Wigmore Hall concerto debut in 2012.
