“Since his first clavichord performance in Fribourg (Switzerland) in 1972, Bernard Brauchli has entirely devoted himself to the performance, study and revival of early keyboard instruments. He has travelled extensively with his instruments in the United States, Canada and Europe, concertising, lecturing and introducing audiences to early keyboard instruments and historical performance practises.
Major appearances have included the Boston Early Music Festival, the Shrine to Music Concert Series (South Dakota), the Festivals of Santander and San Sebastian (Spain), the Festival do Algarve, (Portugal), the Salzburg Festival and the Internationale Musikwochen in Millstadt (Austria), the Festival of Valère (Switzerland), the Corso Internazionale di Musica Antica in Urbino and the Festival dei Saraceni in Pamparato (Italy). He has worked with national television and broadcasting stations in many countries including WGBH National Public Radio Network in Boston, France-Culture, Radio Nacional y Televisión Española, Radio Nacional y Televisión de Venezuela, Radio Difusão Portuguesa and Radio Suisse Romande. Bernard Brauchli has made six record albums and ten compact discs (for Titanic Records, EMI, Stradivarius, MAM) on historical instruments and copies.
Continual research has led Bernard Brauchli to publish numerous articles on both sides of the Atlantic and his book, The Clavichord was published by Cambridge University Press in 1998, for which he received the Nicholas Bessarabof Prize from the American Musical Instrument Society in 1999. In 1983 he was awarded the Julius Adams Stratton Prize for Cultural Achievement. ..“
