Accademia Amsterdam

Diversity and frivolity from Amsterdam, whether as duo, ensemble or orchestra. Instrumental chamber music and baroque cantatas to early classical string quintets.

Musicians: Onno Verschoor, oboe / recorder; Mario Topper, oboe; Henriëtte Bakker, bassoon / recorder; Jan Pieter van Coolwijk and Evert Jan Schuur, violin; Rachael Yates and Niek Idema, viola; Wilma van der Wardt, cello; Hendrik-Jan Wolfert, violone; Susanne Braumann, viola da gamba; Harjo Neutkens, lute; Stefano Intrieri, continuo.

Use of Rhetoric opens up the colourful world of Affect, these days described as the world of feeling.
