Harpsichordist Ewald Demeyere believes that conveying the emotional content of a composition is a musician’s most important task. Since each period has its specifics, however, he intends to combine emotion with historical keyboard technique and performance practice in such a way as to obtain as captivating an interpretation as possible. Demeyere’s research, which, among others, resulted in a PhD and the publication of a book Johann Sebastian Bach’s Art of Fugue—Performance Practice Based on German Eighteenth-Century Theory (2013), is never an end in itself but always has to serve the eloquence of the musical performance. Demeyere has taken part in more than 100 CD recordings, many of which with chamber and solo repertoire. As a player of chamber music, Demeyere works with, amongst others, Barthold Kuijken and Vinciane Baudhuin (Duo Capricornus) . He was a jury member for the Paola Bernardi International Harpsichord Competition in 2013 in Bologna. In 2018, he won the CPEB:CW Counterpoint Contest, with a unanimous verdict from the jury that his Ricercar a 5 per Cembalo was “the most accomplished and natural in its flow”.
