Christian Barthen

The German organist Christian Barthen has been a prizewinner in a number of international organ competitions, including the Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Wiesbaden, the International Organ Competition of St Maurice d’Agaune (Switzerland) and the Grand Prix de Chartres (France). His career as a performer takes him frequently to international festivals and concert series throughout Europe, and engagements have included appearances in the cathedrals of Paris (Notre Dame), Chartres and Le Havre in France, in the cathedrals of Altenberg, Bamberg, Berlin, Fulda, Mainz, Magdeburg, Osnabrück, Schleswig and Ulm in Germany, in the Philharmonic Hall of Essen, and in the Stefaniensaal concert hall in Graz, Austria, with further invitations to Switzerland, Italy, the Czech Republic and Hungary. While still at school Christian Barthen was a pupil of Wolfgang Rübsam at the University of Music in his native Saarbrücken. After his graduation from high school he studied organ, piano and harpsichord performance, sacred music and music education in Saarbrücken. His principal teachers were organists Andreas Rothkopf and Wolfgang Rübsam and pianists Jean Micault and Robert Leonardy. In 2011 and 2012 he studied privately with Philippe Lefèbvre at Notre Dame in Paris and from 2012 to 2014 he studied in the soloist class of Ludger Lohmann at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart.
