Siebe Henstra (Harpsichord, Organ)

Born: Holland

The Dutch harpsichordist and organist, Siebe Henstra, studied the harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt and Ton Koopman at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam. He has won prizes at competitions in Edinburgh (1982) and Amsterdam (1987).

Since then, Siebe Henstra has played with many ensembles; the best known are the Leonhardt Consort, Tokyo Baroque, La Petite Bande, the Ricercar Consort, and the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. He worked with several famous directors - e.g. Frans Brüggen and Gustav Leonhardt - with whom he co-operated for recordings and opera-productions (for Ricercar, Denon, Philips, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Sony and Telefunken), in most of the European countries, Japan and the USA. He is continuo player (organ and harpsichord) of the Nederlandse Bachvereniging.

Siebe Henstra has given a number of master-classes in Finland, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, the USA, Catalunya, and the Czech Republic. At this moment, he teaches harpsichord at the Utrecht conservatory.

Siebe Henstra made several solo CD's. One entirely devoted to 17th century italian music for harpsichord solo and another one with the complete keyboard works of Matthias Weckmann, both released by Ricercar. A CD with clavichord works for the MIM in Brussels and he contributed to the complete recording of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck which got an Edison award (2003) as well as an award of the 'Deutsche Schallplatten Kritik Preis (2003).
