Barthold Kuijken, traverso, conductor
Barthold Kuijken studied the modern flute at The Royal Bruges Conservatory at the Hague. In order to play early music he first turned to the recorder.
His research using authentic instruments, added to his frequent collaboration with the Flute makers, and also advanced studies of 17 Th and 18 Th century sources of information, have lead him to become a well known specialist in period instruments. For many years he performed with the Baroque Orchestra “ Collegium Aureum” and “ La Petite Bande”.
He has played Chamber music all over the world, extending his repertory to the beginning of the 19 th century. He has made many recordings.
He also participated in concerts of the Belgian ensemble “Musiques Nouvelles”.
