Motets (2006)

Bach

La Petite Bande

Sigiswald Kuijken

J.S. Bach’s motets are an indisputable high point in the output of the great Thomaskirche cantor. Even that other genius, W.A. Mozart, was moved to tears when he gazed with his own eyes on the separate hand-written parts during his visit to Leipzig - an anecdote that we in turn find highly moving.
Traditionally, since the re-evaluation of Bach’s oeuvre at the beginning of the last century, the motets have been placed at the centre of his choral universe – indeed, choirs can really show off their technical brilliance in various passages, and moreover these scores are a joy to perform regardless of one’s style of interpretation

La Petite Bande

La Petite Bande (Belgium) was founded in 1972 by Sigiswald Kuijken at the request of the record company Deutsche Harmonia Mundi in order to record Lully’s “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme”, under the direction of Gustav Leonhardt. The orchestra takes its name and constitution from Lully’s own orchestra at the court of Louis XIV. All its members are internationally renowned specialists in the early music field.
Although originally La Petite Bande was not meant to become a permanent orchestra, the success of the recordings was such that they began to give concerts regularly. Having initially concentrated mainly on French music, the orchestra’s repertoire has expanded over the years to include music by the Italian masters and that of Bach, Handel, Gluck, Haydn, Mozart and others. La Petite Bande has recorded instrumental as well as vocal music, including operas and oratorios from the Baroque and Classical periods. La Petite Bande currently makes recordings for Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Denon, Challenge Classics,Accent and Hyperion

Sigiswald Kuijken

Sigiswald Kuijken was born in 1944 close to Brussels. He studied violin at the conservatories of Bruges and Brussels, completing his studies at the latter institution with Maurice Raskin in 1964. He came into contact with early music at a very young age, together with his brother Wieland. Studying on his own, he gained a thorough knowledge of specific 17th and 18th century performance techniques and conventions of interpretation on violin and viola da gamba. This led to the introduction, in 1969, of a more authentic way of playing the baroque violin, whereby the instrument was no longer held under the chin, but lay freely on the shoulder; this was to have a crucial influence on the approach to the violin repertoire and was consequently adopted by many players starting in the early 1970’s. From 1964 to 1972, Sigiswald Kuijken was a member of the Brussels based Alarius Ensemble (with Wieland Kuijken, Robert Kohnen and Janine Rubinlicht), which performed throughout Europe and in the United States. He subsequently undertook individual chamber music projects with a number of Baroque music specialists, chief among which were his brothers Wieland and Barthold and Robert Kohnen, as well as Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Bru?ggen, Anner Bylsma and René Jacobs.
