Bruno Boterf

Bruno Boterf is a contemporary French tenor, specialising in Baroque and early music.


Boterf began his career within the Ensemble Venance Fortunat [fr] and the Groupe Vocal de France before joining the Ensemble Clément Janequin of which he was a member until 2007. Holder of the Certificate of Aptitude for Ancient Music, Boterf has taught at the RRC of Tours, the Royal Conservatory of Liège and the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Lyon where he has been a singing teacher specialized in early music. He regularly teaches courses and master classes on singing and Renaissance music polyphony at conservatories and polyphonic centres.

He is regularly called upon to lead projects involving singers and instrumentalists in the pre-baroque and baroque repertoire (sacred music by Henry Du Mont with the choir of Namur, motets and psalms by Praetorius, Vespers by Monteverdi, Bach's cantatas and Mass in B minor). This pedagogical practice led him to create the Ensemble Ludus Modalis,[1] made up of a dozen singers A capella, whose repertoire mainly covers the period of sacred music from the Renaissance and early Baroque periods.

Boterf has recorded many disks both for the following companies Harmonia Mundi, Alpha, Erato Records, CBS, Auvidis and Ramée with the Ensemble Ludus Modalis and also Ricercar for the first two components of an Henry Du Mont (1610-1684) project.[2]
