About

After the very difficult period of confinement and travel restrictions of 2020 and 2021, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century has found ways for touring and recording again.

Putting in the spotlight two of the orchestra’s long-term soloists, Rainer Zipperling on viola da gamba and Michael Schmidt-Casdorff on flute, this new recording presents Telemann and Bach in the unique light provided by the late Frans Brüggen’s orchestra. Exquisite sound, supreme phrasing and sublime poetry throughout.

In two recording periods, in May and August 2021, the legendary ensemble has put together a fine programme that will entirely satisfy the many fans and serve as a reminder of what the big-scale version of the orchestra was and will soon be again be.

Anna Enquist, one of the Netherlands’ most famous and prestigious writers, provides a beautiful essay for the booklet that describes all the developments of the orchestra over the last year and a half, leading to this very special come together.

Reviews

This performance is intimately voiced, texturally clear and eloquently and lovingly articulated.
