"Frans Brüggen is a musician who is not an archeologist but a great artist." Luciano Berio Once the world's most famous recorder player, today Frans Brüggen is considered among the foremost experts in the performance of eighteenth century music. Frans Brüggen was born in Amsterdam where he studied musicology at the university. At the age of 21, he was appointed professor at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and later held position as Erasmus Professor at Harvard University and Regent's Professor at the University of Berkeley, making him one of the youngest musical scholars of all time. As Luciano Berio wrote, "a musician who is not an archeologist but a great artist". Frans Brüggen's conducting activities in recent years have included engagements with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Hamburg Philharmonic, the Oslo Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zürich, the Stockholm Philharmonic, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Orchestre de Paris. In August 1991, Brüggen made his debut at the Salzburg Festival with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, while his return visits to the Festival included a highly-praised series of concerts with the Mozarteum Orchestra. In October 1992 Frans Brüggen, together with Simon Rattle, became the principal guest conductor of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

For more than a decade there is a close relation with the chamber orchestra of the Dutch Radio, the Radio Kamer Filharmonie. Recent operatic engagements included Mozart's Mitridate, Re di Ponte in Zürich, Gluck's Orfeo with the Opéra de Lyon and Les Indes Galantes of Jean-Philippe Rameau. Frans Brüggen continues extensive touring and recording with his Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, 55 musicians from 23 countries, was founded in 1981 in Amsterdam by Frans Brüggen. Until now, the Orchestra went on tour 97 times, performing for more than a million visitors during 1162 concerts in 293 cities, in over 300 venues on 31 countries of 4 continents. The Orchestra produced 81 live recordings and hundreds of broadcasts for radio and television all over the world. http://www.orchestra18c.com/home.htm Read more on Last.fm.
