The world-renowned organist and harpsichordist Edoardo Bellotti is a leading expert in Renaissance and Baroque keyboard instrument repertoire and improvisation. In addition to his music studies (piano, organ, harpsichord), he studied humanities at the university in his Italian hometown of Pavia and graduated in philosophy and theology.

In addition to teaching and performing, he devotes himself to musicological research, publishes articles, essays and critical editions on organ music and presents his work at international conferences. He published the first modern edition of two of the most important baroque treatises on organ playing: Adriano Banchieri: "L' Organo suonarino" (Venice 1605) and Spiridion a Monte Carmelo: "Nova Instructio pro pulsandis organis" (Bamberg 1670).

Bellotti has released over 30 CDs, both as a soloist and in collaboration with vocal and instrumental ensembles, aiming to document and promote historical instruments and their repertoire.

Edoardo Bellotti has taught organ and harpsichord as well as the theory and practice of improvisation at several European institutions, including the conservatoires of Milan, Trento, Udine and Pavia (Italy), Trossingen and Bremen (Germany) as well as at the renowned Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester (USA). He has been invited as a guest lecturer at many institutions in Europe, Japan, South Korea, Canada and the USA. In October 2023, he returned to the Eastman School of Music as Professor of Harpsichord and teaches historical keyboard instruments and basso continuo.
