Andrew Manze

Andrew Manze, like many early music specialists, had a broad and in many ways academic upbringing. Having read Classics at Cambridge, he then studied violin at London’s Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, under Simon Standage and Marie Leonhardt. This gave him the chance to join the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, leading it between 1989 and 1993, and soon after he began his association with harpsichordist Richard Egarr, resulting in the release of a number of recordings. Manze also formed La Romanesca at around the same time with harpsichordist John Tell and lutenist Nigel North, with whom he recorded and performed a variety of seventeenth-century music.

Also known as a conductor/director, Manze has worked with The Academy of Ancient Music and The English Concert; in the field of period performance he has performed with La Stravaganza (Cologne), the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (San Francisco) and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. His interest in rhetorical and historical aspects of music performance has led him to apply similar principles to much later music, including that of the Second Viennese School.
