Born in Sardinia, Paola Erdas was awarded her diploma in harpsichord at the Conservatory of Venice in 1991. From 1992 to 1996, thanks to a five-year scholarship, she studied under Kenneth Gilbert at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Since 1996 she has been a member of the ensemble L'Apothéose, recording for the Stradivarius label.

In the same year, together with recorder virtuoso Lorenzo Cavasanti, she founded the JANAS ensemble. The group, which collaborates with the theatre and historical dance specialist Deda Colonna, soon became multi-instrumental, with the sound of the harpsichord augmented by voice,winds,strings and percussion , in performances combining poetry, dance and music of the late Renaissance and Baroque periods in the Mediterranean area.

Particularly interested in the early harpsichord repertoire she combines her intense performing activity with her wide musicological interests. For Ut Orpheus Edizioni she has published the first modern edition of the "Pièces de Luth en Musique pour jouer sur le Luth et le Clavessin" by Perrine (Paris 1680), which she has also recorded, for the Stradivarius label, on the Delin harpsichord (Tournai 1768) from the collection of K.Gilbert. Always fascinated by the Spanish repertoire, she has studied this topic in depth with careful research into ancient sources and treatises. In 1997, she recorded the solo CD "Libro de Cifra Nueva" by Luys Venegas de Henestrosa on another harpsichord in K.Gilbert's collection, the Italian F. A. 1677.

The restoration of an extraordinary 1699 Neapolitan harpsichord by Nicolò de Quoco by the Italian maker Augusto Bonza has been the occasion for her solo CD "Il Cembalo intorno a Gesualdo", which has been internationally acclaimed by the critics.

In HERMOSURAS, the first CD production of the JANAS ensemble, she continues her journey through the artistic crossroads between Italy and Spain.

In 2003 Paola Erdas, Lorenzo Cavasanti, Dorothee Oberlinger and Jorge Alberto Guerrero founded the Quadro Janas.

She is presently working on a critical edition of the "Pièces de Clavessin" by N. A. Lebègue, the first volume of which has been already been published by Ut Orpheus Edizioni and recently recorded by her on the Stradivarius label.

Paola Erdas teaches thorough-bass at the Conservatory of Trieste.
