Guest Artists

Eva Lymenstull

Eva Lymenstull a native of Michigan, has performed as a baroque cellist and violist da gamba throughout Europe and the US, including appearances with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Holland Baroque Society, and the Orpheon Consort, as guest principal cellist of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, Lyra Baroque Orchestra, and Apollo’s Fire, and as principal cellist of Symphonie Atlantique. She has performed at the Utrecht, Boston, and Berkeley Early Music Fringe Festivals, and on New York’s Gotham Early Music series. As the winner of the 2017 Voices of Music Bach Competition, Ms. Lymenstull recently recorded Bach’s D minor cello suite. Upcoming season highlights include a CPE Bach cello concerto performance with the CWRU baroque orchestra and a recording project with Lyra Baroque Orchestra. Ms. Lymenstull received a master’s degree in baroque cello from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where she studied with Jaap ter Linden, and also holds degrees from Rice University and the University of Michigan.

Jaap ter Linden

Cellist and conductor Jaap Ter Linden has devoted his illustrious career to historical performance practice, reaching out to audiences with his moving performances and inspiring colleagues and students with his musical enthusiasm and integrity.

His relentless curiosity for the music of Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart has led him to concentrate on this repertoire in his current conducting projects–including a Beethoven cycle with the Wroclaw Symphony–and was the driving force behind a recording of the complete Mozart symphonies with his own Mozart Akademie. The same fascination extends to his chamber music endeavors: this year he will record the complete Beethoven cello and piano works with American fortepianist David Breitman. In upcoming performances, Elizabeth Wallfisch joins them to play the Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms trios.

Jaap is a regular guest conductor and performer with a number of ensembles, including Ensemble Arion (Montreal), Portland Baroque Orchestra, and the Lyra Baroque Orchestra. Recently retired from the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, he continues teaching a handful of advanced students and gives regular master classes throughout Europe and the United States. He enjoys having more time to dedicate to a long-lost passion for photography, as well as writing about various themes related to music and movement, and further exploring the world of music and meaning.

Jaap has made numerous recordings: among his personal favourites are the two different versions of the Bach suites, the old Vivaldi L’Estro Armonico recording with the English Concert and his Mozart symphonies.
