Cristina Alís Raurich

Portative organ, Medieval music, Spain/Switzerland

Cristina Alís Raurich specializes in medieval keyboards. She studied Piano in Barcelona (Spain) and The Hague (The Netherlands). Her interest for medieval music brought her to the Schola Cantorum in Basel where she obtains a master diploma for medieval keyboards (clavicimbalum, clavicytherium and portative organ). She performs with the ensembles „Donnafugata“, „La Camera delle Lacrime“ and „La Douce Semblance". She has contributed to the reconstruction of medieval organs and publishes on the oldest keyboard intabulations.

Making the most of her multilingual skills, Cristina is passionately committed to pedagogy in the fields of medieval keyboards, medieval music and musicology. She is teacher and assistant director at the International Course on Medieval Music Performance in Besalú (Spain), faculty member at the Centre International de Musiques Médiévales de Montpellier (France) and assistant director of the International Course on Late Medieval & Renaissance Music in San Marino (Italy). She regularly gives talks and masterclasses across Europe in conservatories and universities.

At the moment she is enrolled in a Doctoral Program at the University of Würzburg (Germany) and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland).
