Britt Lindemann

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.
