Ronald Brautigam (1954), one of Holland’s leading musicians, is remarkable not only for his virtuosity and musicality but also for the eclectic nature of his musical interests. He studied with Jan Wijn, later in London and in the United States - with Rudolf Serkin. In 1984 he was awarded the ‘Nederlandse Muziekprijs’, the highest Dutch musical award.
Besides his performances on modern instruments Ronald Brautigam has a great passion for the fortepiano. For the Swedish label BIS he recorded the complete piano works of Mozart and Haydn on fortepiano. In 2004 one of the Haydn CDs won the Critic’s Award for a Keyboard release at the MIDEM. For Decca, Ronald Brautigam has recorded piano concertos by Shostakovich, Hindemith and Frank Martin with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Riccardo Chailly.
