Holland Baroque - 'Bach Inspiriert' - a creative ode to the organ

Holland Baroque - 'Bach Inspiriert' (Bach Inspires)- a creative ode to the organ

In Bach inspiriert the form of the pieces is released and the compositions go their own way. The organ works are the inspiration: Tineke and Judith Steenbrink translate the colorful splendor of the 'queen of instruments' to the equally colorful baroque orchestra. Make way for improvisation, a practice that is inextricably linked to Baroque organ culture. Bach's incomparable organ works are taken from niches that are inaccessible to many. It is not surprising that Bach wrote some of his most beautiful and inventive pieces for his own instrument, on which he was the unrivaled master.

“Holland Baroque makes Bach's organ pipes dance.” (Volkskrant) - with approx. 18 musicians

Holland Baroque is an idiosyncratic orchestra that dares to sing, dance, cry and laugh on its instruments. All this from tradition, innovation, surprise and a touch of entertainment. Since its foundation in 2006, the orchestra has been working with many soloists, composers, choirs and theater makers. Meetings with musical guests regularly resulted in warm friendships and opened up new sound worlds. For example, the smooth mixing of Eric Vloeimans' velvety tone with the cornetto showed that baroque is a sound of today. Together with this trumpet whisperer, Holland Baroque received an Edison for the album Carrousel. The tours with piano virtuoso Leszek Możdżer showed that a score can also change constantly in a baroque orchestra when the composer improvises between the musicians. Cellist Giovanni Sollima also composed a number of pieces for Holland Baroque. He could not have written more Neapolitan. Again a tribute to the past and at the same time as fresh as a fiddle.
