About the Artist
Custav Leonhardt, one of the world's leading harpsichordists and organists, was born in Holland. He grew up in a musical household and became interested in the harpsichord and organ at a very early age. He later studied both instruments under Eduard Muller at the Basel Schola Cantorum. In 1952 he was appointed Professor of Musicology and Harpsichord at the Vienna State Academy of Music, but in 1955 relinquished this position in order to return to Amsterdam where he now teaches in the Conservatoire and is organist of the French Reformed Church. His international concert career, which dates back to 1950, has included 17 American recital tours, and in 1969 he occupied the H. A. Lamb Chair at Harvard University.
Mr. Leonhardt is also active as a musicologist. He has published a study of Bach's Art of the Fugue and has edited Sweelinck's keyboard works for the collected edition prepared by the Society of Dutch Music History. Under his editorship a series of 17th-century chamber music has been published by Universal Edition. His activities have also extended to films--in 1968 he played the part of Bach in Jean-Marie Straub's film, The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach.
This evening's recital, Mr. Leonhardt's second in Ann Arbor, marks the beginning of a week-long residency at The University of Michigan. Through Saturday, at the School of Music, the artist will conduct master classes in which he will teach the music of Frescobaldi, Couperin, Froberger, and Bach.
