About the album

In 2012 Saskia Coolen discovered in the Historical Museum in Den Briel, the head joint of an alto recorder, made by the Dutch 18th century instrument maker Engelbert Terton. She brought in the recorder builder and expert Jan Bouterse who cleaned and restored the joint. He suggested that there might well be other playable recorders to be found in private collections. In the years since, Coolen's research has yielded six forgotten eighteenth-century recorders: five altos and a sopranino. On this album she plays these rediscovered recorders, together with gambist Rainer Zipperling and harpsichordist Patrick Ayrton, in eighteenth-century music by De Fesch, Nozeman, Van Wassenaer and other contemporaries.
Coolen blaast nieuw leven in 18e-eeuwse blokfluiten
In 2012 ontdekte Saskia Coolen in het Historisch Museum Den Briel het kopstuk van een altblokfluit, gemaakt door de 18e-eeuwse Nederlandse instrumentenbouwer Engelbert Terton. Ze schakelde blokfluitbouwer en expert Jan Bouterse in, die het kopstuk schoonmaakte en herstelde. Hij suggereerde dat er misschien nog wel meer speelbare blokfluiten in particuliere collecties gevonden konden worden. In de jaren daarna heeft Coolens onderzoek zes vergeten 18e-eeuwse blokfluiten opgeleverd: vijf alten en een sopranino.

Op dit album speelt Coolen op deze opnieuw ontdekte instrumenten, samen met gambist Rainer Zipperling en klavecinist Patrick Ayrton. Samen voeren ze 18e-eeuwse muziek van De Fesch, Nozeman, Van Wassenaer en andere tijdgenoten uit. Deze muziek komt niet alleen uit hetzelfde tijdperk als de blokfluiten, het is ook muziek die werd geschreven, gepubliceerd en gespeeld in de Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden.

Dit album kan beschouwd worden als de opvolger van het zeer succesvolle Recorders Recorded, waarop Coolen herontdekte 18e-eeuwse blokfluiten uit de collectie van het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag bespeelt.
 
Auf dieser CD ist Saskia Coolen mit wiederentdeckten historischen Blockflöten des 19. Jh. und Niederländischem Repertoire der gleichen Zeit zu hören. Es ist das erste Globe-Album im neuen Stil und nur als handnummerierte Limited Edition erhältlich.

Artist(s)

In 2012, recorder player Saskia Coolen discovered by chance, in the Historical Museum in Den Briel, the head joint of an alto recorder, made by the instrument maker Engelbert Terton. She brought in the recorder builder and expert Jan Bouterse who thoroughly cleaned and restored the joint. He suggested that there might well be other playble recorders to be found in private collections. In the years since then, Saskia’s research has turned up six forgotten eighteenth-century recorders: five altos and a sopranino.

On this album she plays these rediscovered recorders, together with gambist Rainer Zipperling and harpsichordist Patrick  Ayrton, in eighteenth-century music by De Fesch, Nozeman, Van Wassenaer and other contemporaries.

In 2004 Saskia also played on historic recorders, from the  collection of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague,  resulting in the album Recorders Recorded.
