Guillermo Brachetta

'The performances are superlative'
Classical Ear


Guillermo Brachetta began piano studies at an early age in his native Argentina, but immediately after discovering the voice of the Baroque he turned his devotion to the harpsichord. Having arrived in The Netherlands in 1995, he studied at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague with Jacques Ogg and at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Menno van Delft. Guillermo also followed classes with Gustav Leonhardt, Bob van Asperen, Christophe Rousset and Lucy van Dael amongst others.

He performs regularly with Emmy Verhey, Amsterdam Bach Solisten, The New Dutch Academy, BandArt, the Catherine the Great Baroque Orchestra, Residentie Orkest, Orkest van het Oosten, Holland Symfonia, and others. Together with Menno van Delft he is founder of the ‘Collegium Wilhelm Friedemann Bach’, devoted to the rediscovery of the work of the unjustly neglected Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.

Guillermo is very active as a music editor and researcher and works in close cooperation with Cambridge University Press and other international institutions, having edited numerous works from the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries for first time publication.

He is a co-founder and the harpsichordist of the critically acclaimed trio Fantasticus.
