A native of Pennsylvania, Robert Warner began his musical studies at an early age in piano and violin with faculty of Bucknell University. He holds bachelors degrees in both math and music from the University of Rochester, and became interested in the world of early music while exploring the harpsichord and baroque violin at the Eastman School of Music. As a graduate student at Stony Brook University, Robert studied harpsichord extensively with Arthur Haas while earning master’s degrees in both music history and performance, followed by a DMA in harpsichord performance also at Stony Brook. During this time he gave frequent recitals, acted as assistant director of Stony Brook’s Baroque ensemble, and collaborated often with other musicians as a harpsichordist and baroque violinist in chamber music, opera and orchestral performances.

Upon graduating from Stony Brook, Robert was accepted into the Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program, continuing his harpsichord studies with Peter Sykes. During this time he participated in projects led by William Christie, Jordi Savall, and other leading figures in the field of early music with frequent performances in New York City’s Alice Tully Hall and international tours to the Netherlands and New Zealand.

Robert has participated in most of the country’s top early music summer festivals, including the American Bach Soloists Academy in San Francisco and the Oregon Bach Festival’s Berwick Academy. Robert now resides in New York City where he continues to be an active performer. He is currently the artistic director and harpsichordist of the New Amsterdam Consort, the harpsichordist for Voyage Sonique, and a founding member and harpsichordist of Musicivic Baroque.
