Christopher Hogwood

Christopher Hogwood is possibly the most famous early music conductor and keyboard player of our time.  His discography, while it branches out into the Classical era, covers an amazingly wide range of composers.  He founded the world-renowned early music ensemble The Academy of Ancient Music, and has played with numerous other ensembles of equal fame.

His website gives more detailed information, as well as a full discography, which is quite an impressive list.  Perhaps it is possible to make a career in Early Music!

When you visited Stuart De Haro, did he still have the over the shoulder instruments in his shop(garage)? I think they are for an ensemble at U Illinois.
