From a very young age, Jean-Luc Ho developed a passion for early keyboard instruments. He started playing the harpsichord when he was eight and later took an interest in the organ and the clavichord. He graduated from the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP) in 2006. Greatly influenced by the teaching of Blandine Verlet, he also benefited from the advice of Martin Gester and Jos van Immerseel. His taste for period instruments and the art of instrument making led him to build his own collection of keyboards, so as to further his research and experiment with new ideas. As a harpsichordist, he has given recitals in Paris (at Radio France and at the Eglise des Billettes), Chartres (at the Musée des Beaux-Arts), Brussels and London, and his first harpsichord recording is devoted to J.S. Bach and F. Couperin (recorded in April 2011). Jean-Luc also teaches harpsichord and figured bass at Franconville (Val d’Oise), and enjoys sharing his passion with a wider audience at workshops in Royaumont and at the Musée de la Musique in Paris, and with Arcal (compagnie nationale de théâtre lyrique et musical).
