Claudia Klinkenberg was born in Bonn/ Germany. She has been in the piano business since more than 30 years. She started collecting period instruments some 12 years ago, deepening her knowledge and experience since then year by year.
As a pianist, Klinkenberg confidently moves between many different styles; her musical and emotional range is far-reaching. In her programs, she combines ancient music, classical, world music, jazz and pop. She has performed in Bonn, Stuttgart (Mercedes-Benz-Museum), Karlsruhe (multiple times on the European Cultural Days festival), Münster (Westphalian State Museum), in the city of Bach Köthen (the famous Spiegelsaal, or Hall of Mirrors), Munich (BMW World), Milan, Paris (Festival of St. Cloud), Vienna (Bösendorfer Hall), Los Angeles, in a number of cities in India and in many other cities in Germany and around the world.
Knut Franke, editor of the magazine FonoForum, has pronounced Klinkenberg as "ready for the German Record Prize” after hearing her interpretations of Albéniz.
