"(...) listening to Wisse I was immediately impressed by the way he so effortlessly moulded the scores into a pleasing and attractive series of melodies conveying what these Dutch Baroque composers no doubt would have wanted the audience to hear. Enthusiastically supported by Teun Braken, who is not only a gifted harpsichord player having already earned his salt elsewhere, but in this particular case also and more importantly a skilled accompanist. He takes full responsibility for delivering the fundament, a condition sine qua non for a duo to successfully operate."

About the album

The Story of Dutch baroque music is a story of cultural connections, of European history. There was not a shortage of music, including repertoire for recorder, in Holland: Amsterdam was not only a center of composition and instrument making, but also one of the most important centers for music publishing. Many of the most esteemed Italian composers had their work published in Amsterdam, making it available there earlier there than in their own country. Dutch composers as well as musicians of the time were thus ironically more ‘close to the source’ than many of their Italian colleagues. The music that was written by Dutch composers was heavily influenced by the Italian style.

Jean Baptiste Loeillet de Gant and his music are exemplary for the strong international character of composition, instrument making, music printing and publishing, and of course musical performance, in which The Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular, played a central role. Sybrant van Noordt is a perfect example of the Italomania. A happy marriage of structural simplicity and richness of detail only achieved by great craftmanship applies the sonata of Willem de Fesch perfectly. Count Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer is a central figure in this programme in which all three of his Sonatas for recorder and harpsichord are featured. These Sonatas are “almost as good as those of Corelli” – as a French official put it during a journey by Wassenaer to Paris.
Die Geschichte der holländischen Barockmusik ist eine Geschichte der kulturellen Verbindungen, der europäischen Geschichte. An Musik, auch an Repertoire für Blockflöte, mangelte es in Holland nicht: Amsterdam war nicht nur ein Zentrum der Komposition und des Instrumentenbaus, sondern auch eines der wichtigsten Zentren für das Musikverlagswesen. Viele der angesehensten italienischen Komponisten ließen ihre Werke in Amsterdam veröffentlichen, so dass sie dort früher erhältlich waren als in ihrem eigenen Land. Die niederländischen Komponisten und Musiker jener Zeit waren somit ironischerweise näher an der Quelle" als viele ihrer italienischen Kollegen. Die Musik, die von niederländischen Komponisten geschrieben wurde, war stark vom italienischen Stil beeinflusst.

Jean Baptiste Loeillet de Gant und seine Musik sind beispielhaft für den starken internationalen Charakter der Komposition, des Instrumentenbaus, des Notendrucks und des Verlagswesens und natürlich der musikalischen Aufführung, bei denen die Niederlande und insbesondere Amsterdam eine zentrale Rolle spielten. Sybrant van Noordt ist ein perfektes Beispiel für die Italomania. Die Sonate von Willem de Fesch ist eine glückliche Verbindung von struktureller Einfachheit und Detailreichtum, die nur durch großes handwerkliches Können erreicht werden kann. Graf Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer ist eine zentrale Figur in diesem Programm, in dem alle drei seiner Sonaten für Blockflöte und Cembalo zu hören sind. Diese Sonaten sind "fast so gut wie die von Corelli" - wie es ein französischer Beamter während einer Reise Wassenaers nach Paris formulierte.
