Neal Peres Da Costa

Neal Peres Da Costa is Australia’s authority in historically informed performance on the keyboard. Whether it’s the harpsichord, fortepiano or organ, Neal has performed with all of this country’s leading ensembles, including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, the Australian Haydn Ensemble, the Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra, and several of the top orchestras in this area internationally, most notably the Academy of Ancient Music and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. This month, he’ll be performing with Bach Akadamie Australia for JS Bach’s Obligato Sonatas.

Neal talks us through the art and the science that is “historically informed performance”, how he came to be a passionate advocate for it, and the various historic keyboards he’s collected over the years.
