Named as one of Early Music America’s Emerging Artists of 2021, harpsichordist Alice M. Chuaqui Baldwin is known for her vivid and exciting interpretations of Baroque music. Praised by The Register-Guard (Eugene, Oregon) for her “masterful solo performances” and “brilliant” playing, Alice specializes in 17th-century Italian repertoire as a soloist, while her expertise as a continuo artist runs the gamut of the Baroque and Classical periods.
As the founder and director of La forza delle stelle | Baroque Orchestra, a period-instrument orchestra based in New York City and northern New Jersey, Alice is passionate about infusing old music with new life and fresh ideas. She is also driven to increase access to and awareness of historical performance practice and runs a YouTube channel called “Exploring Early Music with Dr. Alice Chuaqui Baldwin,” in addition to the position she holds as the Visiting Assistant Professor of Keyboard and Music History at the University of Wyoming.
Alice was the featured young artist in the January 2019 issue of Early Music America magazine and was interviewed as part of their “Early to Rise” series. She has also had the great fortune to perform with many of today’s luminaries in the field of early music, including concerts with His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, Masaaki Suzuki, Rachel Podger, Matthew Halls, Monica Huggett, Paul O’Dette, Robert Mealy, Craig Hella Johnson, and Helmuth Rilling. She spent several summers working as a continuo artist at the Oregon Bach Festival and has also been a member of the continuo team at the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute.
Alice holds a doctorate in harpsichord from Indiana University, where she studied with Elisabeth Wright and Jacques Ogg. She has also studied Baroque music in a variety of settings outside of academia, including being a Phyllis and Charles Rosenthal Fellow at the inaugural Juilliard at the Piccola Accademia program in Montisi, Italy; twice attending the Tafelmusik Winter Institute; and participating in the American Bach Soloists Academy.
In addition to her early music pursuits, Alice is also an active performer of new music. She has premiered several works, both on piano and harpsichord. Most recently, she performed in the world premiere of the septet Equi-Nox (2021)–written by her husband, composer Nicolas Chuaqui–as part of the Become New Music concert series in New York City.
