Christoph Huntgeburth, Traverso Flute

Christoph Huntgeburth was born 1956 and studied music in Münster and Basel with W. Michel and Hans Martin Linde. He started teaching at the Konservatorium Bern in 1982 and was appointed Professor at the University of the Arts Berlin in 1984. He is also a guest lecturer in masterclasses internationally.
In addition to his teaching activities, Christoph Huntgeburth performs both as soloist and principal flutist with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and as a chamber musician in Europe, the Far East and North and South America.
He has made numerous recordings of baroque, classic and romantic flute repertoire. The most recent include "Friedrich der Große, Music for the Berlin Court" with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin at harmonica mundi; with the Ensemble Sans Souci, "Friedrich II: Die Flötenkonzerte, Die Sinfonien, Musik für Königin Luise, Kammermusik am Berliner Hof um 1800" at Studios Berlin; J. Haydn "Die Flötentrios bei JPC und Friedemann Bach", "Kammermusik bei NCA".
His instruments are either original period instruments or made by himself in his flute making workshop.
The main emphasis in his teaching is the interpretation of baroque music. Besides imparting the technical foundations, the teaching aims to strengthen artistic expressiveness and stage presence based on the music's inherent structures and its physiological realization through the training of self-awareness.
