Rubens Küffer

Rubens Kuffer holds a Master’s in Performance from Staatliche Musikhochschule in Karlsruhe, Germany.  Throughout his formal studies and the better part of his career he has focused on ancient music and, in particular, the Baroque Period.  Being also captivated by the 19thCentury, however, soon familiarized himself with the csakan and French flageolet and fully immersed himself in the repertoire of these instruments.  Since then, he has dedicated himself to the pioneering work of rescuing these instruments and their repertoires from obscurity, including the restoration of original instruments as well as the rediscovery of formerly lost techniques and artistic conceptions.
