"Paul Boehnke's playing is exciting in the fast movements and indescribably
lovely in the slow ones....as sensuously beautiful as it is illuminating."
Audio Video Club of Atlanta
Paul Boehnke fell in love with recordings of the fugues of JS Bach when he was
14. The next year he began study in organ and was introduced to the music of
Louis and François Couperin, Buxtehude, Byrd and the ideas of early fingering
and notes inégales.
After studying in Amsterdam, Paul returned to the States and has been heard in
ever more varied contexts. He has been a guest artist with the Newberry Consort
and Second City Music, both of Chicago. He has performed solo recitals in San
Francisco and at the National Music Museum in Vermillion, SD.
Paul has appeared at the Madison Early Music Festival and the national conclaves
of the Viola da Gamba Society of America as well as being a frequent guest artist
at the University of Minnesota's annual Bach Festival and with Lyra Baroque
Orchestra. He has coached ensembles and taught masterclasses locally and as far
away as Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea.
In August of 2007 Paul became the Artistic Director for the Bach Society of
Minnesota. His seasons at the helm have produced varied programs of concerts
which included sacred cantatas, orchestral works, and small chamber works.
