Prof. Dr. ANDERS LJUNGAR-CHAPELON is professor in flute, researcher and Head of Woodwinds at the Malmö Academy of Music/Lund University, Sweden; International Tutor in Flute and researcher at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (RNCM), England; and professor and researcher at the Grieg Academy/Bergen University, Norway. He is a Sankyo Flutes Artist and performs on a flute made of 24 karat gold, and a second flute made of 18 karat gold, both made for him by SANKYO FLUTES in Tokyo (Japan), and on baroque and Renaissance flutes made by Alain Weemaels in Brussels (Belgium)

For many years resident in Germany and France he was an orchestra principal flautist. As a soloist and orchestra player he gives numerous concerts and recitals throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, the Americas and the Pacific, and appears on radio and television, performs regularly as a soloist at international music and flute festivals.

Many of his interpretations are available on compact disc, encompassing music by Bach, Blavet, Mozart, Telemann, Vivaldi, rediscovered works by Swedish composers from 18th and 19th Centuries, music from the 20th century with Arnold Schoenberg’s Sonata Opus 26, not previously recorded, and Chitra (1996) by Pierre-Yves Artaud for Basse de Traversière and backtrack. At the moment he is recording a CD with 20th Century classics for solo flute with works by Debussy, Varèse, Jolivet, Berio, Ferneyhough and Takemitsu. In spring 2016 has his recording of the famous Sonatina for flute and piano (1946) by Pierre Boulez been released by Naxos – the first recording by a Swedish flautist. His repertoire includes a great number of works dedicated to him.

Concerning teaching he is a sought-after professor and lecturer at universities and music academies such as the Paris National Conservatoire (he is the first Scandinavian flautist ever invited to teach at this institution since it's foundation in 1795), Staatliche Musikhochschule Wien (Austria), National University of Brasilia (Brazil), Porto Alegre University (Brazil), International Summer Academy in Nice (France), Oxford Flute Summer School (England), International Summer Academy of ISA (Austria), Elder School of Music/University of South Australia Adelaide (Australia), Hanoi National Conservatory (Vietnam), and further in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and New Zeeland. The languages he uses in his teaching and lectures are, besides Swedish, French, German and English.

As a researcher and supervisor (Bachelor, Master and PhD) he works within artistic research and music education of the professional musician. His doctoral thesis (PhD) is about the French art of flute playing, its tradition, learning, craftsmanship and aesthetics covering the period from 1707 to the very late 20th Century. His research is based on hermeneutics from methodological and philosophical perspectives, together with writings by Plato, Aristotle, Chladenius, Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger and Gadamer.

Some examples of his research is about Scandinavian flute music and flute playing from the 18th and 19th centuries, Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique, musical interpretation, French early 18th century music, musical punctuation, Debussy's Syrinx for flute and its connection to theatre, and investigations into new fields of flute acoustics. Further he works within fields dealing with European 18th century transverse flutes and modern flutes in cross cultural combination with non-European instrument such as the Korean kayagum.

His research has been presented at international conferences such as ISME in Pretoria (South Africa), Beijing (China), Thessaloniki (Greece), EAS in Leuven (Belgium), Porto Alegre (Brazil), Brasilia (Brazil), and in Australia, England, Finland, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

He develops teaching materials and writes research articles in the specialist press. He edits historic and contemporary musical manuscripts published by the editions Flöjtistens Vademecum (Lund University Press, Sweden), Autographus Musicus (Stockholm), in the series The Swedish
Transverse Flute and Flautissimo, where his edition of Debussy’s Syrinx ou La Flûte de Pan has been internationally acknowledged. Universal Edition has also published his Syrinx research in their prestigious series of Wiener Urtext Editions.

His broad approach to music has made him an authority on 18th and 19th century flutes in theory and practice, including a reconstruction of Hotteterre’s Basse de Traversière. During some years he designed flutes in Beijing (China) for among others the flute factory TAMINO FLUTES. His pedagogical interests have also been directed towards the Suzuki method and its adoption for flute, and he holds certificates as a Suzuki flute teacher.

He received his musical education in Gothenburg (Gérard Schaub), Copenhagen (Ørnulf Gullbransen), Cologne (Amadeus Quartet) and Paris (Alain Marion). Close contact with flautist and professor Alain Marion in Paris was especially fruitful, as was the chamber music studies with the Amadeus Quartet in Cologne.
