Before winning the First Prize in the Paris international Harpsichord Competition in 1977 (which immediately confirmed her remarkable reputation in the early music world), Noëlle Spieth studied in Paris at the Conservatoire National Supérieur where she obtained three First Prizes and in Geneva. After the CNSM in Paris, she completed her studies with H. Dreyfus, K. Gilbert and G. Leonhardt.
Prize winner of the Fondation de France and soloist at Radio-France, Noëlle Spieth has made solo radio recordings in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
It is in the seventieth and eightieth French repertoire that Noëlle Spieth is well known, thanks especially to an art of ornamentation brought to perfection as technically as musically. Noëlle Spieth appears among the great references for her interpretation of the Rameau complete works - idem for the François Couperin - a realization for which she received the Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros.
