Tineke Steenbrink: “The organ, also called the 'Queen of instruments', is greatly appreciated by a small group of enthusiasts. They often know every note of Bach's organ repertoire. We at Holland Baroque find it exciting to present Bach's organ works with the orchestra in a different way. By arranging his works note by note, we get to know Bach better again. How we admired his playful virtuosity! His exuberant side is amply presented in this repertoire. A party!"
Judith: 'My sister Tineke and I always look at each other's work. Together we wrote the voice material for this new program. We send our packages back and forth. Not a note goes out without us being satisfied with it. Of course we also play each other's "composition rule-police", it is an honor and a game for us to always respect that old composition rules. "
Tineke: "It remains exciting how it will sound when the players of Holland Baroque breathe life into the notes. Our goal is for the arrangements to be as playable as possible and sound as natural as possible. The purpose of an arrangement is that you do not hear that it is an arrangement.'
According to Marjolijn
"Holland Baroque is a top ensemble of the new era. It has become so because of the high quality, but also because it dares to think out of the box and can come out unexpectedly. This is expressed in daring programming, interesting arrangements and special musicians to work with. The choices it makes are sometimes unexpected but always fascinating and adding. Holland Baroque thinks across centuries and styles.'
