Event Description

Bernhard Klapprott

performs internationally as a soloist, continuo player and conductor. Several of his CDs have received awards, including the „ECHO Klassik“ and the „Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik“. He teaches as professor of Harpsichord/Early Keyboard Instruments and Basso continuo at the Department of Early Music at the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar as well as internationally in master classes.

In 1991, he was awarded 1st prize at the 10th International Organ Competition (Bach/Mozart) at the Festival van Vlaanderen in Bruges. His discography includes the complete keyboard music of Thomas Tomkins (harpsichord, virginal, organ; MDG), keyboard sonatas of Georg Anton Benda (clavichord; Aeolus), organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach (part of the complete recordings on organs built by Andreas and Johann Andreas Silbermann; Aeolus) as well as ensemble recordings as conductor and continuo player.

In 1999, together with Christoph Dittmar, he founded the ensemble Cantus Thuringia & Capella, which presented numerous concerts and recordings emphasising Central German music from the 16th to 18th centuries as well as performed staged works combined with historical acting. In this context, he initiated the project „Music Legacy Thuringia“, which has been dedicated to the rediscovery and publication of mainly unknown Thuringian vocal and instrumental music (CD series with cpo and editions).

His teaching activities led him to the University of Dortmund, the universities of music in Detmold, Herford and Bremen as well as internationally to master classes and guest lectures on aspects of performance practice. In 1994 he was appointed professor at the University of Music FRANZ LISZTWeimar.

Bernhard Klapprott studied harpsichord with Hugo Ruf and Bob van Asperen, organ with Michael Schneider and Ewald Kooiman, and in masterclasses continuo playing with Jesper Christensen and organ with Michael Radulescu. He graduated from his studies in Cologne with degrees in harpsichord and organ performance as well as church music and in Amsterdam with an advanced degree in harpsichord performance with distinction.
