About the Artists
Frans Brueggen, born in Amsterdam in 1934, completed his music studies there, and has now made that city a mecca for recorder students who come to study with him. He was appointed Professor of Recorder at two conservatories at the age of twentyone, and continues teaching at the Royal Conservatory, as well as performing, lecturing, and conducting master classes throughout Europe, America, and Japan. In addition he has recorded over eighty albums, conducts early music ensembles, continues in research and editing, and has commissioned several works for recorder.
Alan Curtis, also born in 1934, met Mr. Brueggen in Amsterdam where he had gone to study with harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt. Now Professor of Music at the University of California at Berkeley, musicologist and specialist in baroque opera, Mr. Curtis is widely known for his concerts, lectures, recordings, and pub?lications on the interpretations of baroque music.
Tonight's concert is Mr. Brueggen's second appearance in Ann Arbor under Musical Society auspices while Mr. Curtis is making his debut in this last concert of the Chamber Arts Series.
