Vital Julian Frey

Technical aplomb and a high level musicality are just as much his trademarks as is his compelling stage presence – Vital Julian Frey is one of the most sought after harpsichordists, chamber musicians and ensemble directors of his generation. With his extensive and successful concert activities, this Swiss-born musician makes a crucial contribution to repositioning the harpsichord on the classical music scene. With the workshops he offers at concerts, this artist has already introduced many children and young people to a completely fresh approach to the harpsichord.

Frey studied with Robert Hill at Freiburg Music College and with Christine Schornsheim at Munich College of Music. He also received formative influences from Christophe Rousset and Gustav Leonhardt. As soloist, Frey has already been heard at a number of prominent festivals including Lucerne, the Bachfest in Leipzig, the Menuhin Festival Gstaad and the Mozart Festival in Würzburg. He has been Artistic Director of the Thun Bach Week since 2016. In addition, this harpsichordist has recorded numerous Radio performances and CDs. His diverse artistic activities have also found great acclaim with the critics; »he achieves the apparently impossible« according to the ›Sonntagszeitung‹  and, in the words of the ›Thüringische Landeszeitung‹, he is quite simply »a superb harpsichordist«.
