Alexander Gergelyfi

On his first solo clavichord album, Alexander Gergelyfi creates an exceptionally colorful and at the same time sensual portrait of his home country Austria. Exquisite music from the 17th and 18th centuries is presented on what is probably the oldest surviving Austrian clavichord. The elegant "Admont" clavichord serves Alexander Gergelyfi as a gateway to hidden sounds and as a companion between dances. Simple yet affecting, keen, and fine. Born in Linz on the Danube in Austria, Alexander Gergelyfi studied harpsichord, historical keyboard instruments and early music performance practice with August Humer, Brett Leighton (Linz/Austria), Eva Maria Pollerus, Michael Hell (Graz/Austria), Aline Zylberajch (Strasbourg/France), Volkhardt Preuss and Menno van Delft (Hamburg/Germany).As a soloist and chamber and orchestra musician, he appears regularly with il Gusto Barocco, Hofkapelle Graz, L‘Orfeo Baroque Orchestra, Barucco, recreationBAROCK, the Viennese early music collective opia and Ensemble Verbotene Frucht. Inspirational experiences connect him with Jörg Halubek, Carin van Heerden, Michi Gaigg, Heinz Ferlesch, Michael Hell and Jordi Savall, among others. Alexander maintains a close musical friendship with personalities such as Gerhart Darmstadt, Amy Power, Joachim Kremer, Julia Willeitner and Carsten Wollin.
