Roderick Swanston asks six performers of early music to reveal the personal element in their music making.
3: The Kuijken brothers were born in a small Belgian village without a radio and started playing on homemade medieval fiddles. Unlike many other eanymusic pioneers, they have stuck to their Baroque and Classical roots. Barthold believes in having the right flute for every job that he does; Sigiswald rejects the idea that he conducts La Petite Bande - he leads from the violin; Wieland dismisses conductors altogether and leads just as much from the cello or gamba. Including influential recordings by Alfred Deller , August Wenzinger , I Musici and Gustav Leonhardt. The
Kuijken brothers themselves play excerpts from chamber music works by Couperln, Bach, Mirthel,
Boccherini, Haydn and Mozart. And La Petite Bande is heard in the Andante movement of Haydn's
Symphony No 94 (Surprise). Discs
