The American organist, hapsichordist and clavichordist, Bradley Lehman, studied music and mathematics at Goshen College, Goshen Indiana (B.A., 1986). He did his graduate work in music at the University of Michigan. There he earned master's degrees in early keyboard instruments and musicology (1992), and a doctorate in harpsichord (1994). His teachers included Edward Parmentier, Penelope Crawford, and James Kibbie.
Bradley Lehman has worked closely with Baroque specialists Enid Sutherland and Jaap Schroeder, and with singer Norma Gentile and trumpeter Martin Hodel. His repertoire spans most of the solo keyboard literature from 1500 to 1775, plus Renaissance and Baroque ensemble music and some modern works. He is particularly interested in historical styles, unequal temperaments, transcriptions, and directness of expression through musical rhetoric.
In addition to his concert work in North America, Germany, and Costa Rica, Bradley Lehman has served several congregations as organist and music leader. His musical activities include various performances on harpsichord, organ, clavichord, virginal, and piano, composition of hymns and keyboard music, continuo work, and collecting and producing recordings.
