Sweelinck, the Orpheus of Amsterdam
Kaleidoscopic tribute to Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621)
A major figure in the history of the keyboard, like Bach and Chopin, the organist of the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam was nicknamed The Phoenix of Music or The Prince of Musicians. Known for his improvisational skills and expertise in instrument making, he trained a whole generation of Northern European musicians whom he welcomed into his home. He left a considerable body of vocal and keyboard music that can be found in England, Central Europe and Northern Italy during his lifetime.
Familiar with Sweelinck's works for many years, Léon Berben (Complete works in 6 CDs Aoelus 2015, diapason d'or) and Jean-Luc Ho (Live recording 2012 label Cordes&Ames) wish to illustrate the different facets of this genius with 4 musical dialogues, during a day or an evening of festival. Polyphonies of emblematic performers and keyboards, atmospheres and acoustics (church, chapel, sacristy, cloister...) will paint a constantly renewed portrait of Sweelinck.
Complete discography planned from 2022 to 2027.
