Bine Bryndorf is Castle Organist at Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød Denmark, forty kilometers north of Copenhagen. She also holds the position of Professor of Organ at the Royal Academy of Music in London and she teaches at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.

A prize-winner at three international organ competitions (Innsbruck, Bruges and Odense) and two chamber music competitions (Melk and Copenhagen), Bine Bryndorf studied at the University of Music in Vienna where she earned a Master’s degree in organ, harpsichord, and sacred music. She also earned an Artist Diploma from the University of Music in Saarbrücken. Following her years in Vienna she moved back to Denmark and for twenty-three years served as Professor, and later Head of Department, at The Royal Danish Academy of Music. In 2017 she chose to reduce her teaching schedule in Copenhagen and devote more of her time to concert performances, taking on the post as Castle Organist at the world famous 1610 Esaias Compenius Organ at Frederiksborg Castle and performing concerts around the world.

Bine Bryndorf has a distinguished international career as a soloist and is in great demand as a teacher of masterclasses and as a juror at international organ competitions. Upcoming engagements include appearances in France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and China. Being both organist and harpsichordist, chamber music has always been an important element of her career. She regularly performs in small ensembles as well as with choirs and chamber orchestras.

While the music of the baroque era is her core repertoire, Bryndorf performs the entire spectrum of music for the organ. She has recorded several CDs featuring organ works by Buxtehude, Scheidemann, Bruhns, Bach, the Danish composers Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) and Niels la Cour (born 1944). Her recording of the complete works of Buxtehude earned the Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s yearly award; the P2 Prize, in 2007.
