Raphael Alpermann (Harpsichord, Organ, Conductor)

Born: 1960 - Germany

The German harpsichordist, organist and conductor, Raphael Alpermann, studied piano at the Academy of Music Hanns Eisler in East Berlin before studying harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt and Ton Koopman.

He is one of the founding members of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and has appeared both as a soloist and continuo player with the ensemble in countless concerts and recordings. In 1995 he debuted with the Berliner Philharmoniker in a performance of J.S. Bach's harpsichord concertos and since then has appeared regularly with the orchestra. Working with Claudio Abbado, Simon Rattle and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Alpermann’s tour schedule has brought him to many leading music venues on all five continents with both the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and the Berliner Philharmoniker. In addition he has participated in more than 100 CD recordings and regularly appears as a guest with other ensembles specializing in historical performance.

In Berlin Raphael Alpermann teaches harpsichord and chamber music at the Academy of Music Hanns Eisler.
