Cristina Alís Raurich is a historical keyboard player, researcher, and medieval music specialist born in Mataró—a town near Barcelona. She first studied piano with Irina Pochekina and Stanislav Pochekin at the Conservatori del Liceu, and completed a master’s degree at the Escola Luthier d’Arts Musicals (Barcelona) with the pianist Gennady Dzubenko. At the same time she studied historical organ with Josep M. Mas i Bonet, Wijnand van de Pol and José Luis Gonzalez Uriol, focusing on the Spanish organ repertoire. After that she moved to the Netherlands to study with Prof. Naum Grubert at the Koninklijk Conservatorium (The Hague, The Netherlands).
Her interest in medieval music prompted her to enter the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Basel, Switzerland) where she completed a Master’s degree in Medieval and Renaissance keyboard instruments (clavicimbalum, clavicytherium, hammered clavicimbalum and organetto), studying with Corina Marti and privately with Christophe Deslignes. Cristina also studied medieval percussion and musicology with Dr. Mauricio Molina. Cristina is a member of the groups such as “Magister Petrus” directed by Dr. Mauricio Molina, “Le Souvenir”, “Carmina Harmonica”, “Sonus Hyspanie” and “Hamelin Consort”, which was awarded the Förderpreis für Alte Musik in 2012 (Saarbrücken, Germany). With these groups and as a soloist she has performed in Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Lithuania, Italy, Poland and Switzerland, and has lectured and taught courses in places such as The Hague’s Conservatorium and the Conservatori de Girona.
Cristina is assistant director and faculty member of the International Course on Medieval Music Performance (11th-14th centuries) of Besalú (Catalonia). She gives courses and master class on medieval music and medieval keyboards around Europe. Some of her projects include performing on various reconstructed medieval organs across Europe (instruments by Walter Chinaglia), and the researching and publishing of hitherto little known medieval keyboard music.
She is currently in a Doctoral Program at the University of Würzburg (Germany) / Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland) researching on Aquitanian tropes.
As a pianist she debuted with Mozart Concerto in A Major K.414 with the Orquestra de Girona, and won two first-prize awards in piano competitions. Cristina had taught piano at the Conservatory of Girona (Catalonia) and at the Conservatoire de Saint-Louis (France).
