Bine Bryndorf  

organ

Bine Bryndorf is a professor of organ and sacred music at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. She is also an organist at the Trinitatis Church in Copenhagen. She was born and grew up in Helsingør. At the age of 18 she went to Vienna and took her complete training there. Later came the soloist class and further studies in Saarbrücken and Boston. Her most important teachers were Kristian Olesen (organ), Bjørn Hjelmborg (theory), Michael Radulescu and Daniel Roth (organ), William Porter (improvisation) as well as Gordon Murray (harpsichord). She has played concerts in most European countries, in Japan and USA and is in great demand as a jury member in international organ competitions and as a teacher at masterclasses. Chamber music has always been an important element in her activities. With the Baroque ­repertoire as her stepping stone, she explores the whole wide spectrum of the organ repertoire. For Dacapo Bine Bryndorf is most recently featured on a CD with works by Danish composer Niels la Cour (b. 1944), and, previously, in a series of Dietrich Buxtehude’s complete organ works, re-released in a box set for Dacapo in late 2015. For Hänssler Classic she has recorded works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Bine Bryndorf has been a teacher at the Musikhochschule in Vienna. Since 1994 she has taught at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.

BRUHNS & SCHEIDEMANN Orgelværker
[..] "Bine Bryndorf’s [..] playing here is eminently musical, not an academic exercise in period technique at the expense of artistic sense - as we too often hear in recordings of early organ music. She clearly understands the musical rhetoric of the Stylus Phantasticus as evidenced by her flexibility in tempo." [..]

BRUHNS & SCHEIDEMANN: Orgelværker
5/6 Hjerter

"Bine Bryndorf vælger moderate og afvejede tempi og bringer i sin udlægning musikken ned i øjenhøjde, fra det store orgel med det renæssanceklingende navn. Det er både historisk informeret og en æstetisk nydelse at lytte til."

”Bryndorf spielt wirklich bewundernswert, und registriert eher zurückhaltend. Klar strukturiert und gut durchdacht, bringt sie Buxtehudes Musik hervorragend zur Geltung – diese Box bietet ganz eindeutig eine der besten Gesamteinspielungen von Buxtehudes Orgelwerk, die derzeit zu bekommen sind.”

BRUHNS & SCHEIDEMANN: Orgelværker
"Det bedste er at høre orgelværker i selve kirkerummet. Det næstbedste kunne f.eks. være at lytte til indspilninger med Bine Bryndorf, en af tidens allerbedste danske organister. Roskilde Domkirkes herlige Raphaëlis-orgel yder her to af 1600-tallets organister fra den såkaldte ”nordtyske skole” fuld retfærdighed og mere til. Heinrich Scheidemann synes i et par af værkerne lidt forsigtig, spæd og sprød, men det er også den unge orgelkunstner, Bine Bryndorf har udvalgt her. Som en form for kontrast står de seks udvalgte værker af Nicolaus Bruhns stærkt, med fuldtonede registreringer og en udsøgt kælen for de klangmuligheder, som det store barokinstrument byder på."

DIETRICH BUXTEHUDE: SAMLEDE ORGELVÆRKER
"I årene 2003-2007 indspillede Bine Bryndorf samtlige Buxtehudes orgelværker. Hun valgte udelukkende at spille på orgler i skandinaviske og nordtyske kirker, bl.a. kirker i Helsingør, Helsingborg og Lübeck, hvor komponisten selv virkede som organist. Nu er disse indspilninger blevet samlet i et box-sæt med langt over seks timers musik, fra koralforspil og salmemelodier hen over sprøde chaconner og canzoner til storladne og rigt facetterede præludier og toccataer. Med ekspertens sikre fornemmelse for og indsigt i de enkelte orglers ydeevne, stemmevolumen og registreringsmuligheder tager Bine Bryndorf lytteren med på en rejse dybt ind i Buxtehudes enorme produktion, hvor der er rig lejlighed til at fokusere på både værkgenre og på de muligheder, disse ”instrumenternes dronninger” byder på."

BRUHNS & SCHEIDEMANN: Orgelværker
"En ny cd bygger videre på Bine Bryndorfs indsigt i barokkens orgelmusik. Den rummer musik af to komponister tidsmæssigt på hver sin side af Buxtehude, nemlig Henrich Scheidemann og efterfølgeren Nicolaus Bruhns. De tilhørte begge den såkaldte nordiske skole, begge var originale komponister, som man alligevel kan tidsfæste før og efter Buxtehude og til dels stedfæste til Danmark. Det spændende St. Raphaëlis barokorgel i Roskilde Domkirke er ideelt for Bie Bryndorf til at give udtryk for en rigt afvekslende tolkning af interessant barokmusik."
