Lucinda began her career as a modern violinist, performing with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra in Australia, Europe and America. In 1992 she traveled to the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague, beginning several years of specialist post-graduate study in baroque violin with the renowned pedagogue and musician Sigiswald Kuijken. A prizewinner at the Bruges Early Music Competition with the Dutch-based ensemble Les Quatre, Lucinda was appointed concertmaster of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra in 1995.
As principal violinist with The Musicke Roome (Stockholm), Elysium Ensemble (Melbourne) and Chacona (Newcastle), her recent performances include concerts and broadcasts in Scandanavia, Belgium, Mexico and Australia. Lucinda also demonstrates a commitment to regional touring, which has seen her play in country centers throughout NSW. In addition to her extensive performing experience, with a discography spanning J P Rameauís Pieces de Clavecin, early 18th century Italian repertoire and previously unrecorded cantatas by Scarlatti, Lucinda acts as tutor and consultant on many early music projects.
Playing on an original Giofreddo Cappa violin circa 1700, Lucinda has recently taken delivery of a viola díamore by the Australian maker Peter Biffin. Forthcoming projects include an exploration of the díamore repertoire, and of 17th century Italian virtuoso violin music.
