Benjamin Alard’s principal passion has always been the music of J.S. Bach and it was for his interpretation of this great composer that he was awarded first prize in the 2004 International Harpsichord Competition in Bruges. Since 2005 he has been organist of the Bernard-Aubertin organ in the church of Saint-Louis-en-l’Ile. Since 2005 he has been a member of La Petite Bande, an ensemble founded in 1973 by Gustav Leonhardt and Sigiswald Kuijken. Benjamin Alard has recorded for the label Hortus and has made several recordings of works by J. S. Bach for Alpha. His recordings have consistently received high praise from the press and have been awarded multiple prizes. He is at present recording the complete works for harpsichord and organ solo by Johann Sebastian Bach for Harmonia Mundi.


Music in Kilkenny is supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, Kilkenny County Council and the Office of Public Works.


This recital is in association with the St. Canice’s Cathedral Holy Week Festival, Passio, which runs from Sunday 5th till Sunday 12th April
