Henriette Wirth


After winning the first prize at the piano competition of Bloemendaal (2001), the Dutch pianist and harpsichord player Henriëtte Wirth studied Musicology at the University of Utrecht and piano at the Conservatory of Utrecht with Klára Würtz and Paolo Giacometti. She wrote a musicological thesis about her great-aunt Janny van Wering, the first professional Dutch harpsichord player in the Netherlands. This interest led her to the world of early music. After finishing her two studies in Utrecht, Henriëtte moved to Belgium where she studied harpsichord at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Herman Stinders. She graduated in 2016 whereafter she continued her studies as a pianoforte student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Piet Kuijken and with Bart van Oort at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
Besides her studies, Henriëtte is an active chamber music player on both piano, harpsichord and pianoforte. Since 2009 she performs regularly with the Arcadië Trio (clarinet, cello and piano). Henriëtte is a teacher at the cultural centre of the University of Utrecht since 2007, teaching piano, harpsichord and accompaniment.
