LARS ULRIK MORTENSEN

Lars Ulrik Mortensen studied at the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen and with Trevor Pinnock in London. From 1988 to 1990 he was harpsichordist with London Baroque and until 1993 with Collegium Musicum 90. He now works extensively as a soloist and chamber-musician in Europe, the United States, Mexico, South America, and Japan, performing regularly with distinguished colleagues such as Emma Kirkby, John Holloway and Jaap ter Linden. Between 1996 and 1999 he was professor for harpsichord and performance practice at the Munich Musikhochschule, and he now teaches at numerous early music courses throughout the world.

Until recently Lars Ulrik Mortensen was also active as a conductor in Sweden and Denmark, where his activities at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen met with great critical acclaim, although he has now returned to work primarily with period instrument ensembles.Since 1999 he has been artistic director of the Danish Baroque Orchestra, Concerto Copenhagen, and in 2004 he succeeded Roy Goodman as musical director of the European Union Baroque Orchestra.

He has recorded extensively for numerous labels, and his recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was awarded the French Diapason d’Or. The series of Buxtehude recordings from the 1990s for the Danish Dacapo label met with universal acclaim, and recordings of chamber music and cantatas by Buxtehude have won Danish Grammy awards, among other honours. In 2000 he was named Danish Musician of the Year for his recordings of harpsichord music by Buxtehude, which also received the Cannes Classical Award 2001. As a conductor his recordings include releases of harpsichord concertos by Bach and piano concertos by Haydn, in addition to symphonies by the Danish composers J.E. Hartmann, F.L.A.E. Kunzen and G. Gerson. Lars Ulrik Mortensen has received a number of prizes and distinctions, among them the Danish Music Critics’ Award in 1984, and in 2007 Denmark’s most prestigious music award, the Léonie Sonning Music Prize.
