Trevor Pinnock is renowned worldwide as a harpsichordist and conductor who pioneered performance on historical instruments with his own orchestra, The English Concert,
and has been acclaimed as a musical magician for over 40 years.

This programme was inspired by the travels of Antonio Cabezon, the great organist and composer, who in the mid 1550''s travelled across Europe in the company of
his employer, Prince Felipe and his brother, Juan. While in England Cabezon would have met Thomas Tallis and perhaps even the very young but precocious William
Byrd. Byrd''s fellow composer, John Bull, spent much of his life in the Netherlands where he became a close friend of Sweelinck, the father of the North German
organ school of which J.S. Bach would become the pinnacle. Bach himself copied music of the old masters and owned a score of Frescobaldi''s Fiori Musicali.

"Pinnock totally lives in his music and communicates an infectious delight in playingā€¯. Basellandschaftliche Zeitung
