The Mastermind on the Recorder
Virtuosity and musicality combined with visionary genius – The South African ECHO-Award-winner Stefan Temmingh left recorder clichés behind long ago. With every project he breaks new ground, enlarges the repertoire, raises the bar and creates new traditions for his instrument.
His expressivity, his powerful playing and vivid stage presence have placed him in the top league of recorder players, bringing him standing ovations worldwide. He performs internationally with his own baroque ensemble or with orchestras which he often conducts from the soloist desk.
For his CD projects Stefan Temmingh has received some of the internationally most renowned distinctions, for example the ECHO Klassik Award, the International Classical Music Award, the “Editor’s Choice” of the Gramophone Magazin as well as the “Diapason d’or”.
