Netherlands Bach Collegium (Baroque Orchestra)

Founded: The Netherlands

Netherlands Bach Collegium (= NBC) consists of the finest baroque specialists in Europe. With Pieter Jan Leusink conducting, the orchestra made many CD recordings, which got favourable reviews by both national and international music critics. The long experience in concert and recording practice of the various musicians with regard to Baroque music, in partucular J.S. Bach's compositions, guarantee a characteristic performance, marked by a great sense of authencity. Their recording of the complete Bach Church Cantatas cycle under the baton of Pieter Jan Leusink for Brilliant Classics, got an extra dimension by the integral use of period instriments.
