Peter Holtslag kisses the princesses awake: Since the days of Frans Brüggen, it has been a nearly impossible undertaking to perform on original historical instruments. The instruments languish locked up in display cases and archives. On this SuperAudioCD, Peter Holtslag awakens to life again six famous instruments by Peter Bressan and others.

For this extraordinary occasion, he brought together an excellent international ensemble. The selected compositions are representative of the works that would have been played on these recorders three hundred years ago.

The Dutch recorder player Peter Holtslag is an internationally renowned artist who teaches in London and Hamburg, among other places. He has always had a keen interest in the historical originals.

AEOLUS accompanied this production with elaborate and yet puristic technology. This unique sound document does justice to the “princesses” by means of an SACD with high-resolution stereo and surround sound. The accompanying booklet is a virtual book with a very extensive commentary and a great deal of scholarly information about the instruments, including color illustrations. In addition to the Bate Collection of the University of Oxford, Southampton University and London’s Royal Academy of Music supported this production.
