Ludger Rémy

Personal details

The harpsichordist/pianist and conductor Ludger Rémy feels an obligation to meet the challenge set by the theorist Mattheson to combine theory and practice. He studied school music and harpsichord in Freiburg (Breisgau), followed by private studies with Kenneth Gilbert in Paris. Since 1998 he has been Professor of Early Music at Dresden. Around 70 CD productions – several have been awarded prestigious prizes – both as instrumentalist and conductor, as well as numerous concerts at home and abroad (at festivals including Utrecht, Brügge, Paris, Saintes, Bachfest Leipzig, Händelfestspiele Göttingen, Musikfestspiele Dresden) make him one of the leading musicians active in the rediscovery and revival of early German music.
