Yonit Kosovske maintains an active career as both a historical keyboardist and modern pianist that encompasses repertoire spanning the Renaissance through New Music. Originally from the United States, Yonit moved to Ireland in 2011 when she was appointed Lecturer in Music on the faculty of the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick. She has previously taught at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music from where she holds a Doctor of Music degree in harpsichord performance. Other degrees include a Master of Music from San Francisco Conservatory and a Bachelor of Music from Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts in New Jersey.
Her book “Historical Harpsichord Technique, Developing La douceur du toucher” was published by Indiana University Press in 2011, a work synthesizing her doctoral research into the connection between technique and expressivity on harpsichord. In addition to concerts scheduled throughout 2016–2017, Yonit’s plans include her new “Chrome Attic” project, an online multi-media blog featuring her research, performance and reflections upon solo chromatic harpsichord repertoire c1550–1700.
