Since he was first introduced to the world of historical recordings by his harpsichord teacher Prof. Dr. Robert Hill at the age of 11, Sebastian Bausch has realized the importance of these unique sources as evidence for the long-lost performance traditions of the romantic era. He is currently working on his PhD thesis, in which he examines and compares different styles of piano playing in the vicinity of the Leipzig conservatory’s academic tradition at the end of the 19th century. This is part of his work as a research fellow in Kai Köpp’s project “Instructive Editions” at the Bern University of Arts.
As a performer, he feels equally at home at the harpsichord, organ and pianoforte, which he all studied with professors Jörg-Andreas Bötticher, Wolfgang Zerer and Edoardo Torbianelli at the Schola Cantorum in Basle (Switzerland) and appears in concert regularly as a soloist and chamber musician.
