Germany's Konrad Junghänel identifies himself primarily as a lutenist, and it was in that capacity that he first became known for sheer virtuosity combined with mastery of style and ornamentation technique. His lute repertory, centered on the German Baroque standards of Silvius Leopold Weiss (whose complete works he has recorded to critical and prize-committee acclaim) and J.S. Bach, numbers some 100 pieces, and he has served as soloist or as part of the continuo group (on various stringed instruments, including theorbo) with top-level historical-performance groups such as La Petite Bande and Les Arts Florissants, as well as his hometown Musica Antiqua Köln.
