Dear friends of music and art,
it is our great pleasure to welcome harpsichordist and clavichordist Sigrun Stephan back to the Musikstudio.
Being born in Eisenach, the same city as Johann Sebastian Bach, filled harpsichordist Sigrun Stephan with pride even as a child. In Weimar, where she attended the special school for music and subsequently studied piano at the university, she was reminded daily by a memorial plaque to Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach that there are other wonderful keyboard instruments besides the piano.
The desire to explore the harpsichord took her to the Ruhr area, of all places, where she devoted herself to historical keyboard instruments at the Folkwanghochschule in Essen. There she also held a teaching position following her harpsichord studies.
Sigrun Stephan plays continuo in various ensembles, is active as a soloist and participates in numerous CD productions. Since 2006 Sigrun Stephan has devoted herself intensively to the clavichord and has specialized as a soloist on this expressive, sensitive instrument. Her motto “Volume proves nothing!” comes from Mark Twain.
Today’s program, entitled Contrasts, lets us listen in on the sound worlds of composers W. Byrd, C. Burney, J. G. Müthel, C. P. E. Bach, C. Erbach, W. F. Bach, J. Haydn and L. v. Beethoven. This time the musician can be heard both on the cemballino, a smaller version of the harpsichord, and on the clavichord – a concert of quiet, but equally harmonious and crystal clear sounds.
