ABOUT THE PERFORMERS A former student of Frans Brüggen in The Hague, EVA LEGÊNE has served on the faculties of the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam, the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen, and Indiana University. She performs widely as a soloist and in collaboration with Frans Brüggen, Wieland and Barthold Kuijken, John Gibbons, and the Rosenborg Trio. Legêne’s recordings can be found on the Telefunken label, the Brüggen Consort label, and as soloist on the Denon label. Prof. Legêne’s researches led to the discovery of the Rosenborg recorders (two valuable 17th-century narwhal tusk recorders) in Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen. Together with Frans Brüggen, she made public the first copies of these instruments.

Yale University Collection of Musical Instruments presents

EVA LEGÊNE, recorder WIELAND KUIJKEN, viola da gamba ARTHUR HAAS, harpsichord

WIELAND KUIJKEN is known throughout the world as one of the premier performers on both the viola da gamba and the baroque cello. A charter member of the renowned Alarius Ensemble from its inception in 1952, Kuijken has also been a prominent member of the Petite Bande, and the Ensemble Musique Nouvelle. He has recorded chamber works extensively with such artists as Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Brüggen, and Alfred Deller. Wieland Kuijken has been on the faculties of both the Brussels and The Hague conservatories. His two brothers Sigiswald and Barthold are also eminent musicians known for their pioneering work in the field of early music. A top prize winner in the 1975 Paris harpsichord competition, ARTHUR HAAS lived in Paris from 1975 to 1983, performing in most major French early music festivals. Praised by Le Monde for his interpretation of French keyboard music, Haas has recorded the duo-harpsichord music of Gaspard LeRoux with William Christie and solo music by D’Anglebert and Forqueray. He is an active chamber musician as a member of the Aulos Ensemble, Musical Assembly, and Collegium Atlantis. Arthur Haas has taught at the summer early music music institutes in Berkeley, Amherst, and the Longy School of Music; he has also taught at the Eastman School and at Stanford University, and is currently on the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
