Baroque Harp

A ‘rising young star of early harps’, Hannah Lane is a leading exponent of the next generation of Antipodean musicians dedicated to early music. Hannah studied modern harp with Alice Giles and historically informed performance practice with Geoffrey Lancaster, graduating with high distinction. She completed her studies in baroque harp in Milan, Italy, under the guidance of the historical harp pioneer and world-renowned performer/teacher, Mara Galassi.

As a soloist and continuo player Hannah has appeared at international festivals including the Spoleto Festival, Urbino Musica Antica Festival, the Canberra International Music Festival, and the Adelaide Festival, where she performed the baroque harp solo in Handel's Saul with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, in the critically-acclaimed production directed by Barrie Kosky. She is a recording artist for Obsidian Records (UK), ABC Classics, and Pinchgut Live.

Hannah performs regularly with many leading ensembles throughout Australia and Europe including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Pinchgut Opera, Orchestra of the Antipodes, Latitude 37, Van Diemen's Band, Genesis Baroque, Ludovico’s Band, Concerto Romano, {oh!} Orkiestra historyczna, Lux Musicae London, the Reate Festival Baroque Ensemble, I Madrigali Estensi, and the Orchestra Nazionale Barocca dei Conservatori Italiani, an ensemble comprised of the leading young period instrumentalists in Italy. Currently based in Melbourne, she is the Artistic Director of Ensemble 642, which is dedicated to music for early plucked strings.

Hannah is an active researcher—viewing this as an integral part of historically informed performance practice—and has presented her research at international conferences and published on historical harp performance practice in leading academic journals.
