    Dr David Irving

David Irving is a Senior Lecturer at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, the University of Melbourne. A passionate performer on baroque violin, he has worked with numerous early music groups in Australia and Europe, including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, the Gabrieli Consort & Players, The Hanover Band, and The Early Opera Company. His research focuses on the role of music in intercultural exchange, particularly in Southeast Asia, from 1500 to 1800. He plays a violin by John Simmers (Brisbane, 2000), after Jacob Stainer (Absam, 1659), and uses a bow by Hans Reiners (Berlin, 2005), after an anonymous English model (c.1720).
