Gerd Turk, tenor, received his first vocal
training with the Limburger Domsingknaben
(Boy's Choir of Limburg Cathedral). At the
Frankfurt College of Music he studied church
music and choir direction. After having taught
at the Speyer Institute of Church Music he
devoted his attention entirely to singing.
Studies of baroque singing and interpretation
with Rene Jacobs and Richard Levitt at the
Schola Cantorum Basiliensis led to a career
as a sought after singer, touring in Europe,
South-East Asia, the USA and Japan. He has
performed at major festivals of early music,
e.g. in Bruges, Utrecht, Stuttgart, London,
Luceme and Aix-en-Provence. Gerd Turk has
a great preference for ensemble singing.
He is a member of Cantus Colln, Germany's
leading vocal ensemble, and Gilles Binchois
(France), renowned for its interpretation
of medival music. Gerd Turk also teaches
singing and oratorio interpretation at the
Heidelberg College of Music. He is appointed
a professor of singing at the Schola Cantorum
Basiliensis since 2000.
