About the album

2019 – An Anniversary Year. For three exceptional musicians 2019 brings cause for great joy and gratitude for several reasons.
Ton Koopman, internationally renowned as a harpsichordist, organist, conductor, professor and musicologist, celebrates his 75th birthday.
He also looks back on 40 highly successful years with the ensemble he founded, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

His wife, Tini Mathot, an outstandingly gifted harpsichord and fortepiano virtuoso as well as a very successful producer of countless international CDs, celebrates her 70th birthday.

Klaus Mertens, acclaimed for over four decades as an international concert singer with an admirably wide repertoire stretching from Monteverdi to contemporary composers, also celebrates his 70th birthday. “As the ideal conveyor of Bach’s cantatas and passion texts…” he also receives the Bach-Medaille of the city of Leipzig in 2019.

As if this were not sufficient cause to celebrate an anniversary, these three musicians cap it all by looking back on 40 years of successful and amicable music-making together in concerts and recording studios by presenting an anniversary CD as well as several chamber concerts.
2019, een jubileumjaar voor drie uitzonderlijke musici, Ton Koopman, Tini Mathot en Klaus Mertens, een jaar vol vreugde en dankbaarheid en alle reden om samen dit nieuwe album uit te brengen: Willst du dein Herz mir schenken. Het is een prachtige verzameling met liederen van ongeëvenaarde componisten als Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrich Händel, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn en Franz Schubert.

2019, waarom een jubileumjaar?

Een van de redenen om 2019 tot een jublileumjaar uit te roepen is de 75ste verjaardag van de internationaal bekende klavecinist, organist, dirigent en onderzoeker Ton Koopman, die ook kan terugkijken op 40 zeer succesvolle jaren met het door hem opgerichte ensemble het Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. Een ander opmerkelijk feit is dat deze Bach-kenner in 2019 is benoemd tot voorzitter van het Bach-Archiv Leipzig en zal optreden als ambassadeur voor het Bachonderzoek.

Tini Mathot, onvolprezen begaafd virtuoos op klavecimbel en fortepiano, heeft eveneens een verjaardag te vieren, haar 70ste. Zij is een succesvolle producer van talloze cd's en getrouwd met Ton Koopman.

De vermaarde bas-bariton Klaus Mertens en hechte muzikale partner van Ton Koopman, is al decennialang te horen op internationale concertpodia met een bewonderenswaardig repertoire dat zich uitstrekt van Monteverdi tot eigentijdse componisten. Ook hij viert zijn 70ste verjaardag. En of dat nog niet genoeg is, ontving de zanger in 2019 ook nog de Bach-medaille van de stad Leipzig.

De drie kijken terug op 40 jaar succesvol en vriendschappelijk samen muziek maken tijdens concerten en cd-opnames. Alle reden dus om met elkaar dit mooie album uit te brengen en enkele kamermuziekconcerten te geven.
2019 - ein Jubiläumsjahr. Für drei außergewöhnliche Musiker bringt 2019 Grund zu großer Freude und Dankbarkeit, aus verschiedenen Gründen.

Ton Koopman, international berühmt als Cembalist, Organist, Dirigent, Professor und Musikwissenschaftler, feiert seinen 75. Geburtstag.

Er blickt zudem zurück auf 40 höchst erfolgreiche Jahre mit dem Ensemble, das er gegründet hat: das Amsterdam Barockorchester.

Seine Frau, Tini Mathot, eine außerordentlich talentierte Cembalo- und Hammerklaviervirtuosin sowie sehr erfolgreiche Produzentin zahlreicher internationaler CD-Veröffentlichungen, feiert ihren 70. Geburtstag.

Klaus Mertens, seit über vier Jahrzehnten gefeierter internationaler Konzertsänger mit bewundernswert breitem Repertoire, das von Monteverdi zu zeitgenössischen Komponisten reicht, feiert ebenfalls seinen 70. Geburtstag. Als „idealer Vermittler von Bachs Kantaten und Passionstexten...“ erhält er 2019 zudem die Bach-Medaille der Stadt Leipzig.

Als wäre das noch nicht genug Grund für eine Jubiläumsfeier, setzen diese drei Musiker alledem noch eins darauf, denn sie feiern außerdem 40 Jahre gemeinsamen Musizierens in Konzerten und Aufnahmestudios, indem sie sowohl eine Jubiläums-CD als auch einige Kammerkonzerte präsentieren.

Artist(s)

Born in Zwolle (The Netherlands) Ton Koopman had a classical education and studied organ, harpsichord and musicology in Amsterdam. He received the Prix d‘Excellence for both instruments. Naturally attracted by historical instruments and fascinated by the philological performance style, Koopman concentrated his studies on Baroque music, with particular attention to J.S. Bach, and soon became a leading figure in the “authentic performance” movement.

As organist and harpsichordist Ton Koopman has appeared in the most prestigious concert halls of the world and played the most beautiful historical instruments of Europe. At the age of 25, he created his first baroque orchestra; in 1979 he founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra followed in 1992 by the Amsterdam Baroque Choir. Combined as the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, the ensemble soon gained worldwide fame as one of the best ensembles on period instruments. With a repertoire ranging from the early Baroque to the late Classics, they have performed at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Théatre des Champs-Elysées and Salle Pleyel in Paris, Barbican and Royal Albert Hall in London, Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, Philharmonie in Berlin, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York, Suntory Hall in Tokyo as well as in Brussels, Milan, Madrid, Rome, Salzburg, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Munich, Athens, etc.

Among Ton Koopman’s most ambitious projects has been the recording of the complete Bach cantatas, a massive undertaking for which he has been awarded the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis “Echo Klassik”, the BBC Award, the Hector Berlioz Prize and has been nominated for the Grammy Award (USA) and the Gramophone Award (UK). In addition to the works of Bach, Koopman has long been an advocate of the music of Bach’s predecessor Dieterich Buxtehude and following the completion of the Bach project, he embarked in 2005 on the recording of the Buxtehude-Opera Omnia. The edition consists of 30 CDs, the last having been released in 2014. Ton Koopman is President of the International Dieterich Buxtehude Society. In 2006 he was awarded the Bach-Prize of the City of Leipzig, in 2012 the Buxtehude Prize of the city of Lübeck, and in 2014 he received the Bach Prize of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Ton Koopman has a very wide repertoire: as harpsichordist and organist he has performed music from the Renaissance to the Classical period, with the ABO&C he has explored intensely the Baroque and Classical period and as a conductor with modern orchestras he also approaches the early Romantics.

In recent years, Ton Koopman has been very active as guest conductor. He has worked with the most prominent orchestras of the world, among them the Berlin Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Royal Concertgebouw, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, DSO Berlin, Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France Paris, Vienna Symphony, Boston Symphony and Cleveland Orchestra.

Ton Koopman has recorded an enormous number of records for Erato, Teldec, Sony, Deutsche Grammophon, and Philips. In 2003 he founded his own label “Antoine Marchand”, a sub label of Challenge Classics. Ton Koopman publishes regularly. He has edited the complete Händel Organ Concertos for Breitkopf & Härtel and recently published new editions of Händel’s Messiah and Buxtehude‘s Das Jüngste Gericht for Carus Verlag.

Ton Koopman is Professor at the University of Leiden, Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Music in London and artistic director of the Festival “Itinéraire Baroque”.
