Frank Agsteribbe is a multi-faceted musician who is active as a conductor, composer, keyboard player and graphic artist. Within all his activities he looks for direct expression, plasticity and lively colorfulness, both in opera and in baroque or contemporary music. He is particularly interested in the connections between music from the 17th or 18th century and the music of today.
After studying organ and harpsichord, he played with the most prominent Flemish baroque ensembles (La Petite Bande, Collegium Vocale Gent, Huelgas Ensemble, Anima Eterna Brugge, Il Fondamento). He was the co-founder, conductor and harpsichordist of B’Rock, assistant conductor at La Monnaie and the Aix-en-Provence Festival, and founder and principal conductor of the vocal ensemble cantoLX from Luxembourg. With violinist Guido de Neve, he performed works by J.S. Bach, Flemish music from the 18th century and contemporary works.
Frank Agsteribbe has more than 100 compositions to his credit, most of which were written on commission.
