Marcia Hadjimarkos performs, teaches, and records on a variety of keyboards instruments from the earliest Florentine piano to its modern counterpart, with particular interest in clavichords and historic pianos both grand and square. An Oregon native, she now lives in France, and studied the fortepiano with Jos Van Immerseel at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique after earning degrees in piano performance and French from the University of Iowa.

Highlights of her career include an 8-recital performance of the complete Haydn sonatas on several early keyboards, the commemoration of Hélène de Montgeroult’s 250th birthday at the Paris Conservatoire, a concert series on a facsimile of the Cristofori piano, song recitals with Emma Kirkby, Beth Taylor, and Julianne Baird, a clavichord concert at the Institute for Advanced Study, and premiering clavichord works dedicated to her by composers such as John Harbison, Philippe Forget, and Drake Mabry.

Her performances are described as “imaginatively realized, full-blooded, and loving”, “brilliantly intelligent”, and “dynamic, free, and powerfully shaped”. She has played at the International Piano Festival in La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Sablé Festival, l’Arsenal de Metz, Rencontres Internationales Harmoniques, the Nordic Historical Keyboard Festival, the Cobbe, Finchcocks, and Russell Collections, and the San Diego Early Music Society, among many other venues in Europe and the US. Over the years she has returned to the Midwest for recitals organized by the ICEKS, Morningside College, and in the Madison area. This is her third appearance at the NMM.

Marcia's recordings of Mozart Sonatas and Rondos, Haydn Sonatas, Character Pieces by C.P.E. Bach, Haydn songs & cantatas with Emma Kirkby, Viennese music with Hugo Reyne (czakan), and Schubert Dances and Sonata, have been enthusiastically received and earned awards including a Diapason d’Or. Last year she released two new albums: Murmurations, featuring minimalist music recorded on an 1887 Steinway, and Portrait d'une compositrice visionnaire. The latter, in which Marcia accompanies mezzo-soprano Beth Taylor and violinist Nicolas Mazzoleni, showcases the works of the French pre-romantic composer Hélène de Montgeroult, played on an 1817 French square piano.
