Taro Takeuchi was born in Kyoto, Japan. After completing his degrees in law and music in Tokyo, he studied early music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He now lives in London and he has been in great demand as a soloist and ensemble player. Taro has toured most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, the USA and Japan. As a continuo player he has worked with The English Concert, The Royal Opera House, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Berlin Philharmonic, as well as Sir Simon Rattle, Rachel Podger and Nigel Kennedy. He has made numerous recordings for Deux-Elles, EMI, Hyperion Records, Harmonia Mundi, the BBC and others.

St Paul’s Church dates back the 1630s, and was the first entirely new church to be built in London since the reformation. It is widely known as the Actors’ Church due to its long-standing connections with local theatres, including the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane and the Covent Garden Theatre (now the Royal Opera House). In Samuel Pepys’ diary, the church is mentioned as the venue of London’s first ever Punch and Judy show.
