     Christopher D. Lewis

Christopher is The Welsh Contemporary Harpsichordist and is currently based in Southampton, England. Born in Rhiwbina, Cardiff, he moved to North America in 2005 to study harpsichord with Luc Beause'jour & Hank Knox at McGill University, Montreal. He next completed a Master's of Music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with Corey Jamason, both degrees with a specialisation in contemporary music.

In his 2010 debut as a recording artist, he released "The New Fangled Clavier" through the New Mix Music label; it featured old and new music and works commissioned especially for the CD. In late Summer 2012 he completed his first orchestral album with the world's largest classical music label Naxos, recording all modern harpsichord works. "Harpsichord Concertos" was released worldwide in September 2013. A solo harpsichord recording (on a newly restored Pleyel Harpsichord dating from 1931) under the same label will be recorded in 2014.

In 2014 he began an Arts & Humanities Research Council funded PhD at the University of Southampton entitled, "The Making of the Modern Harpsichord," with Jane Chapman and in conjunction with the National Trust.

He has performed in the United Kingdom, Canada, The Netherlands, USA & the South Pacific. He is a sought after speaker on modern harpsichord music and its use-and the performers that revived the instrument-throughout the 20th century, and into 21st.

In his spare time Christopher enjoys aviation, British sitcoms and is one of only a handful of people in the world to have piloted a winged sports submarine.
