Baroque feeling: that feeling you get when you enter a room & tucked away in a corner is a strange instrument covered with nick knacks. You clear all the items away and find yourself face to face with a harpsichord. A tingling sensation goes up your spine as you open the protective wood and raise the soundboard. Your fingers reach down to make a first chord.
disappointment? No, not really, but it is true that it must have been years since the instrument has been tuned. You decide that this minor inconvenience could be actually charming & a friend happens to have recording equipment on hand. You think of Zuzana Růžičková, and you play your best: voilà the result.

Months later you decide to make that recording of flauto dolce in homage to Frans Brüggen. You have taken years to amass a small collection of flutes of various timbres & start recording with the new multi-track recording device that a friend gives you for your birthday.

Eventually you put the two recordings together to make a succinct & subtle cassette: Het Slechtgetemperde Klavier en Zwakke Blokfluiten. credits
