Abraham Abreu has had a long and important career in his country, Venezuela, as performer and educator. His contribution to his country's musical education has been enhanced by his long activities as a university professor, and as a radio and television music lecturer and performer.

Educated at Yale University as a pianist, he has concentrated since 1970 in the performance of Baroque music at the harpsichord. In 1972 he worked briefly under the guidance of the great Dutch master Gustav Leonhardt.

His concerts in most European and American countries have been warmly received by the press and the public. He has played in Berlin, Oslo, Zürich, Basel, Bern, Vienna, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Bristol, Amsterdam, The Hague, Boston, New Haven, Bogotá, Mexico, Guatemala, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro.

He has been a jury member in the "First Bach Competition" in Saarbrücken, Germany (1992) and the prestigious "Harpsichord and Fortepiano Competition" in Bruges, Belgium (1995).

He has played the Well Tempered Clavier II in the Bach Festival in Bristol (1082) and the complete Clavierübung in London (1993). In Caracas, he performs the complete works of Bach for the Humboldt Association concert series regularly.


Reviews:

London: The Times

...he relished the music's biting dissonances with superb resource...and his musical audacity made comparison with Landowska far from exaggerated...

London: The Gramophone

...his performance gives the impression of a solid technique and a cultivated sense of Baroque interpretation...

Berlin: Der Tagesspiegel

...amazing passagework and a precise execution of ornaments stress the artistic style of his performances...

Bogotá: El Tiempo

...Abreu offered an exquisite recital...he possesses an irreproachable technique and great finesse...

Oslo: Verdens Jang

...Abreu plays elegantly and with great style... he is one of the finest harpsichordists I have ever heard...

Boston: The Boston Globe

...Abreu is no ordinary harpsichordist... his artistry focuses round a strong rhythmic impulse and unusual finger agility... he brought to the Scarlatti Sonatas a marvelous rhythmic lift and uncommon spontaneity...
