Biography

Tom Beghin grew up in Leuven and studied at the Lemmens Institute with Alan Weiss and at the music academy in Basel with Rudolf Buchbinder and Jean Goverts. He earned his doctorate at Cornell University (N.Y., U.S.) with Malcolm Bilson.

He has received international praise as an original performer, and is also a verbally well-equipped musician who likes to explain historically informed techniques. He is a prominent recitalist and often plays in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.

As a soloist he collaborated with several baroque orchestras, and in New York he created a furore with his complete performance of the Beethoven sonatas on period instruments.

His discography contains, among others, solo recordings of Haydn, C.P.E. Bach, Beethoven, Ignaz Moscheles, and Mozart. With violinist Elisabeth Blumenstock and cellist Elisabeth Le Guin he forms the trio Galatea. Tom Beghin is professor of music history, historically informed performance practice, and fortepiano at McGill University, Montreal.
