Who is Jos van Immerseel?

Jos Van Immerseel is a Belgian harpsichordist, pianist and conductor.

Van Immerseel studied organ, piano and harpsichord at the Antwerp Conservatory under Flor Peeters, Eugène Traey and harpsichordist and musicologist Kenneth Gilbert. He created the Collegium Musicum there, developing his interest in Renaissance and Baroque music, later expanding his activities to include the Classical and early Romantic eras. He is now in demand as a fortepianist in concert halls across Europe, where he is known for his refined sensitivity to the rhetorical aspects of music and for his skills in improvisation. He performs on his own instruments, travelling with his fortepiano when necessary.

In 1987 Van Immerseel established the "period instrument" ensemble Anima Eterna, which he continues to lead. During 1999 they toured Europe with performances of Beethoven symphonies.

In addition to his concertising, Van Immerseel is professor at the Antwerp Conservatory, where he uses historical instruments from the nearby Vleeshuis Museum to give masterclasses.
