Leo van Doeselaar
Following studies at the Sweelinck Conservatory, Leo van Doeselaar was awarded the Prix d'Excellence in organ in 1979, the Toonkunst- Jubileum Prize in 1980, and the 'Zilveren Vriendenkrans' from the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 1981. As a specialist in Baroque organ repertoire, he appears frequently throughout Europe and the United States at various prestigious early music festivals, as a soloist, with well-known orchestras and conductors, and as a continuo player for Europe's finest Baroque ensembles, including those led by Philippe Herreweghe, Ton Koopman, Sigiswald Kuijken, Gustav Leonhardt, and Andrew Parrott.
His discography includes the first complete recording of the organ works of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and Georg Friedrich Händel, as well as recordings of Mozart, Krebs, J. S. Bach, Anthoni van Noordt, Liszt, and Hindeminth. He is professor of organ at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin and organist of the Van Hagerbeer organ (1643) of the Leiden Pieterskerk.
