Biography

Wieland Kuijken was born in Dilbeek near Brussels in 1938. When he was 14 the family moved to artistically active Bruges. A year later he left school and began his musical studies: cello and piano.

He completed his studies at the Brussels Conservatoire, when he took his performers examination in 1962. In parallel with his Conservatoire studies he interested himself more and more with earlier music and its instruments. At the age of 18 he began to teach himself the viola da gamba.

His musical career started with the Alarius Enemble (1959-1972). At the same time he showed a great interest in avantgarde music.

He became internationally known through many concerts and recordings with his brothers Sigiswald Kuijken and Barthold Kuijken, Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Brüggen and Alfred Deller.

Since 1970 he has taught at the Conservatoires in Brussels and The Hague. In addition to these activities he regularly gives international summer masterclasses (Innsbruck etc.)
