Léon Berben was born in 1970 in Heerlen (The Netherlands) and studied harpsichord and organ in The Hague at the Royal Conservatory and in Amsterdam at the Sweelinck Conservatory with Rienk Jiskoot, Bob van Asperen, Ton Koopman and Gustav Leonhardt, completing his training with the Soloist Diploma. In March 2000 he became harpsichordist with Musica Antiqua Köln, collaborating in guest performances in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, with recordings for DGG Archiv. Since November 2006 he has concentrated on chamber music, and particularly on solo repertoire for harpsichord and organ, with recordings on historical instruments winning critical acclaim, including the German Record Critics' quarterly prize and the CHOC of Le monde de la Musique. In addition to his activity as a performer he carries out research in music history and theory, with publications including the article on Historical Performance Practice in Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, of which he was co-author.
