BARTHOLD KUIJKEN TESTIMONIAL

on the ELYSIUM ENSEMBLE recording of QUANTZ: SEI DUETTI (1759)

“I listened with great pleasure to the Quantz duet recording of Greg Dikmans and Lucinda Moon. They made me rediscover these works, that have too often been undervalued as dry and uninteresting compositions.

"I am glad that Greg Dikmans and Lucinda Moon did not take the easy superficial approach, but made the effort to take these light and charming works “seriously” enough and bring out so many different shades of colours.

“Quantz himself recommends playing these pieces with two different instruments in order to do justice to the polyphonic writing, and I am particularly happy hearing them being performed on flute and violin rather than two flutes.

“Thanks, Greg and Lucinda!”

— Barthold Kuijken, Gooik, May 21st 2015

Broadford Salon Concert Series

Greg Dikmans (flute & recorder) and Lucinda Moon (violin) with Peter Hagen (harpsichord)

Veracini, Pisendel and Quantz are performed by the Elysium Ensemble joined here for the first time by Peter Hagen. Full blooded virtuosic music by composers who dedicated their music to Kings and worked in the great courts of Europe is contrasted with moments of refined elegance.

The influence of the Italians upon the musical scene in Dresden is highlighted in this programme of stunning music. The full texture of the violin is explored with much double stopping and fiery displays of rapidity, while the refined and delicate sound of the baroque flute is extended into rapid passagi and extraordinary virtuosic displays.
