Trevor Stephenson

Works by Bach, Handel and Scarlatti. After hearing a performance of Mozart’s piano sonatas on a fortepiano as a graduate student, Trevor Stephenson began an exhaustive exploration of the different expressive and tonal possibilities of historical keyboard instruments. Working with Norman Sheppard, he began building and customizing his own historical instruments, ranging from Italian Renaissance harpsichords to Victorian pianos. These instruments are featured in a set of twelve recordings on the Light & Shadow label. Trevor Stephenson founded the Madison Bach Musicians in 2004 and currently serves as artistic director. He tours throughout the United States as performer and lecturer. For more information please visit
