"The name Kuijken represents quality. It has become a brand of excellence" - Radio Klara, Belgium
Sigiswald Kuijken, internationally recognised as a leader in historical performance practice, founded La Petite Bande in 1972 and the Kuijken String Quartet in 1986; his influence on generations of period instrument performers remains vital and unsurpassed.
On this tour we’ll be get the chance to hear two contrasting facets of Kuijken’s artistry. In performances of string quartets by Haydn and Mozart – including Haydn’s mercurial Quartet in E-flat ‘The Joke’ – he and his colleagues will play the repertoire they have lived and breathed for decades.
Then, Kuijken’s playing of three solo Bach works will be an inspirational, intimate and unique musical experience.
