About Duo De Jordaan

Based in the Hague, Duo De Jordaan is an early keyboard duo formed by Adam Jaffe and Anthony Abouhamad. The duo performs an innovative mix of early keyboard music ranging from the English virginalist school to the early classical works of Mozart and Haydn. Recent performances include concerts in the Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam and the Musical Instruments Museum in Brussels, as well as a six-date tour of Australia, including concerts in Sydney, Canberra, and the Blue Mountains. During this time, the duo performed and was interviewed on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation as well as being interviewed for a feature article in the Canberra Times. In 2014, the duo will perform in St. Paul, MN, Chapel Hill, NC, and at the Handel House in London.

Adam Jaffe, a native of Atlanta, USA, was the recipient of a 2011 Fulbright scholarship to further his early music studies in the Hague, where he currently studies harpsichord and basso continuo under Jacques Ogg and performs regularly as a soloist and continuo player. He was a participant in the 2014 International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig.

Australian early keyboard specialist, Anthony Abouhamad was an honours graduate from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (SCM). In his hometown of Sydney, Anthony has performed with many international virtuosos including the flautist Emmanuel Pahud and violinist Pekka Kuusisto. As well as being a sought after continuo player, he has also taught harpsichord, basso continuo and harmony at the SCM.
