Stanley Hoogland was one of the first pianists to take an interest in the fortepiano, which gave rise to a series of recordings made in the early seventies with such artists as Anner Bylsma and Vera Beths.

As a soloist and chamber musician he has been performing all over the world and he has been a guest of many festivals. Stanley Hoogland has been playing in various ensembles. He took part in the performance of the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos with the Orchestra of the 18th Century, which took place in several cities in Europe. In the Mozart year he participated in a project to perform the most important piano concertos with the same orchestra. He recorded with the Japanese orchestra Libera Classica Mozart’s concerto in d minor KV 466 for the record label Arte dell’ arco. For the same label he recorded Mozart solo piano works (sonatas, Fantasy and Rondo) and Schubert (Sonata D959, Piano pieces D946 and Ländler D790). All these recordings and chamber music of Mozart and Schubert are now available in a box “the art of Stanley Hoogland” containing six CD’s (ADJ-038/43) in cooperation with the Japanese conductor and cellist Hidemi Suzuki. His recording of Alkan miniatures on a Pleyel from 1858 has been reissued on Brilliant Classics.

For recordings and concerts he often uses period instruments of his own collection and as a player of the modern piano, he does not limit himself to any fixed period in music history.

Stanley Hoogland is still active as a teacher and is often invited to give masterclasses. Many of his former students are now active in the international music scene.
