Aline Zylberajch (FR) — Harpsichord & organ

A graduate of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique, Paris, and of the New England Conservatory of Music, Boston, Aline Zylberajch started her career as a harpsichordist. She contributed to the early productions of ensembles such as La Chapelle Royale, Les Musiciens du Louvre and Martin Gester’s Le Parlement de Musique, with which she performed numerous operas and oratorios. These concerts fostered her predilection for vocal music and the way it is echoed in works written for keyboard instruments. Later, her interest in the music of the late 18th century led her naturally to an intensive involvement in the performance practice of the early piano and the amazing variety of instruments built at that time. This period, which also saw the increasing popularity of duos, trios and quartets with obbligato keyboard opened up a whole new field of research into chamber music, another one of her many passions.

Based in Strasbourg, where she teaches harpsichord at the Académie Supérieure de Musique, she travels extensively to give recitals both on the harpsichord and fortepiano and interpretation Masters classes (in Australia, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, Mexico, North America, Poland and Spain). She also teaches the pedagogy of the harpsichord at the Pedagogy Department of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris.

Her recordings have received much praise in Classica, Gramophone, Early Music Review, etc. and several prizes such as “Diapason d’Or”, Répertoire, “Choc du Monde de la Musique”, etc.

Teaching languages: EN, FR, DE, ES.
