Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre (1665-1729) was a French musician, harpsichordist and composer. Her first published work was the ""Premier livre de pieces de clavessin"", which included unmeasured preludes (Paris 1687). It was one of the few collections of harpsichord pieces printed in France in the 17th Century, along with those of Chambonnieres, Lebegue and d'Anglebert. In 1707 she published her ""Pieces de Clavecin qui peuvent se jouer sur le Violon"", a new set of harpsichord pieces. Elisabetta Guglielmin graduated in 1986 from the Conservatory of Music "A. Steffani" Castelfranco Veneto (Italy). She travels throughout Italy and the rest of Europe teaching masterclasses on harpsichord and cembalo performance as well as historical performance practice.
