A native of Hungary, harpsichordist and pianist Hedi Salanki is Distinguished University Professor and Director of Chamber Music and the Piano Program at the University of West Florida. She was named a Yamaha Artist for maintaining the highest standards in piano performance and education.

She will perform on a harpsichord from the NMM’s collection made by Thomas and Barbara Wolf in 1992, after an instrument by Nicolas Dumont, Paris, 1707. The allover decoration was executed by Sheridan Germann, Boston, who based the case painting on a 1733 François-Etienne Blanchet harpsichord in the Château du Thoiry, France. Acquired in 2017, this will be the local debut of the instrument.

Salanki has appeared with the New Jersey Symphony, the New York Chamber Orchestra, I Solisti New York, the Syracuse Symphony, the Pensacola Symphony, the Jacksonville Symphony, the Mobile Symphony and numerous chamber ensembles. She has performed solo, duo and lecture recitals in Europe, the United States, South America, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, New Zealand, and Costa Rica.

Among her recordings on the Pantheon, Priceless, Laserlight, Centaur and Prince Productions labels are many significant works of Bach, including the Goldberg Variations (nominated for Ovation Magazine’s Debut Artist of the Year Award), the Concerti, and the complete English Suites. She has also recorded Scarlatti Sonatas, Telemann Overtures, the complete Giulio Ruvo Cello/Harpsichord Sonatas and a French Baroque program.

She earned a Doctorate in Harpsichord Performance from the Juilliard School, a Master’s from Rutgers University, as well as degrees and diplomas in piano performance and pedagogy from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music and the Bartok Conservatory in Budapest.
