2015 Jubileumconcert BussumI had a wonderful concert evening!
First of all, the beautiful cantatas with beautiful individual voices but also beautiful ensemble singing and ... beautifully blending accompaniment. [...] The four-handed organ playing by Euwe and Sybolt sounded [...] as if the organ were in 4th gear. [...] The relaxed and also festive atmosphere was enhanced by the choir singing of the public. [...] The toast at the back of the church was finally cosy.

Voorstelling met de gezongen (!) Goldbergvariaties van Bach

Uitgevoerd door Accademia Amsterdam en kamerkoor PA'dam, in samenwerking met acteur Vincent Bijlo.

Goldbergvariationen MiddenbeemsterWat een concert afgelopen zondagmiddag in Middenbeemster [door Accademia Amsterdam en PA'dam]!! 'k Heb ademloos geluisterd van begin tot eind naar jullie vocale uitvoering van de Goldbergvariaties van Bach. Zowel koor als orkest een tien met een griffel! En uiteraard niet te vergeten Vincent Bijlo met zijn zo nu en dan erg grappige teksten. Vloeiende overgang tussen hem en jullie spel.

CD of Accademia Amsterdam, co-production Folia

Contents: "Music for Baroque Dances at the Court and Theatre"

You can order through the web shop.

choice collectionThis is simply a sparkling gem of a release. The French noble style of dance was at its peak at the end of the 17th Century and through the first half of the 18th. [...] The music is divided in groups, mostly according to context — such as whether it was for the theater or the ballroom. A shorter section at the end has a few dances with Spanish and Italian flavor, and the last two are English country dances from the Playford collection.
I love this music, and it's performed in a way that feels very authentic — one can imagine an elegant French ballroom or a theater. Most of it is very lively (naturally), though there are some slower dances. Great party music!
The notes give quite a bit of information about the period in general and then a few words about each dance, including source notes, which might be of particular interest to performers.
