Carey Beebe
Harpsichord Technician
• Carey is perhaps the most traveled and best-known Australian harpsichord maker, enjoying his 21st Carmel Bach Festival season in 2019.

• Recent projects include the debut performance of his latest harpsichord with Maxim Emelyanychev directing Il Pomo d’oro in Joyce DiDonato’s In War & Peace—Harmony Through Music for Abu Dhabi Festival; the preparation of an original late 16th-century Italian harpsichord for Christophe Rousset’s Frescobaldi recording on the Aparte label; and performances of Don Giovanni with Freiburger Barockorchester in Shenzhen and Bahrain.

• In addition to his skills as a maker with more than 50 instruments bearing his name spread over four continents, Carey is an award-winning restorer of original instruments, and has gained considerable expertise in the problems of maintaining early keyboards under adverse conditions.
