About the album

Marten Root studied the flute with Frans Vester, and the baroque flute with Bart Kuyken at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. He is flautist with both the Biedermeier Quintet and the Schönbrunn Ensemble and principal flautist of the baroque orchestra of the Netherlands Bach Society and of Jos van Immerseel's Anima Eterna. He also regularly works with such orchestras as Tafelmusik (Toronto), the Hanover Band (London) and John Elliot Gardiner's Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romantique.

Richard Egarr first studied at the Chetham's School of Music in Manchester, then at Clare College, Cambridge and at the Guildhall School of Music in London. After this he studied with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam and in 1988 he took top prize in the international C.P.E. Bach Competition in Hamburg. He works extensively throughout Europe in the major music festivals, both as a soloist and continuo player and is also the harpsichordist with London Baroque.

Viola de Hoog studied with Lidewij Scheifes and Anner Bijlsma at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam. She concentrates mainly on playing chamber music, both on modern and baroque cello. She is the cellist of the world famous Schönberg Quartet, of the Schönbrunn Ensemble and also principal cellist with the Ensemble Anima Eterna.

De Fluitsonates van Bach uitgevoerd op authentieke instrumenten
Johann Sebastian Bach componeerde zijn Fluitsonates en Partita voor Fluit in de periode waarin de flauto traverso, de voorloper van de dwarsfluit, de plaats van de blokfluit innam. Deze werken tonen de kleuren en de expressieve en technische kwaliteiten van dit voor Bach nieuwe instrument. Op dit album worden ze door bekende solisten uitgevoerd op authentieke instrumenten.

Marten Root studeerde fluit onder Frans Vester, en barokfluit onder Bart Kuyken aan het Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. Hij is fluitist in het Schönbrunn Ensemble en het orkest van de Nederlandse Bachvereniging. Hij werkt ook regelmatig samen met orkesten als Tafelmusik en John Elliot Gardiner’s Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romatique.

Richard Egarr studeerde eerst aan Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, Clare College in Cambridge en de Guildhall School of Music in Londen. Daarna studeerde hij onder Gustav Leonhardt aan het Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam. Egarr treedt als solist en continuospeler op door heel Europa.

Viola de Hoog studeerde onder Lidewij Scheifes en Anner Bijlsma aan het Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam. Ze richt zich voornamelijk op het spelen van kamermuziek, zowel op barokcello als moderne cello, en is cellist in het Schönbrunn Ensemble en het Narratio Quartet.

Composer(s)

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and hundreds of cantatas. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.  Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
