Johann Sebastain Bach Goldberg Variation BWV 988
Jörg Halubek (1977-) studied organ, harpsichord, conducting and musicology in Stuttgart, Freiburg, Tübingen and Basel with Jon Laukvik, Robert Hill, Jesper Christensen and Andrea Marcon.
In 2004, Halubek won first prize at the XIV. International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig in the category of organ. This was followed by numerous invitations to concertize at international festivals, among them the Bach festivals in Leipzig, Salzburg, Ansbach and Yekaterinburg. As soloist, he has concertized with the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Staatsorchester Stuttgart. In June of 2007, on a tour through Japan and Korea with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Halubek debuted to a sold-out concert hall at the Seoul Arts Center with Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor.
In 2009, Halubek founded the Stuttgart-based Baroque orchestra “Il Gusto Barocco.” As conductor, Halubek assumed the musical assistance of a co-production of the Staatsoper Stuttgart and the Salzburg Festival (Antonio Vivaldi’s “Juditha triumphans,” Sebastian Nübling/Lutz Rademacher).
A close artistic partnership has connected Halubek with Baroque violinist Leila Schayegh since 2008.
After a CD production of great Bach organ works on the Silbermann organ in Rötha, Halubek has played and recorded works written by Bernardo Storace, Mossi and others.
Since 2010, Halubek has been Professor of Historical Keyboard Instruments and Performance Practice at the Anton Bruckner Private University for Music, Drama and Dance in Linz and at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart.
