In January our concert comes from Maastricht in The Netherlands, set along the banks of the Meuse river. Lyra’s artistic director, Jacques Ogg brings us a special solo performance from the Cellebroederskapel. This chapel was built in 1512 as an addition to the monastery established in 1360. More recently it’s where a young Jacques used to practice the organ. From this beautiful town of medieval streets and buildings we’ll hear the music of Froberger, Frescobaldi, and other relatively new-fangled composers of the 17th century.

Artist

Jacques Ogg 

One of the most prominent and influential modern masters of harpsichord and fortepiano, Jacques Ogg performs worldwide as a soloist and continuo player. He was a member of one of the world’s leading period-instrument ensembles, the Orchestra of the 18th Century, directed by the late Frans Brüggen, and also worked with Baroque orchestras in Salamanca and Sevilla, Spain. Highly sought after as a pedagogue, he is a harpsichord professor at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, one of the world’s foremost institutes for early music. Mr. Ogg co-directs the International Baroque Instrumental Program, an intensive summer music course in the Twin Cities, and has been the artistic director of the Lyra Baroque Orchestra since 2000. His discography includes more than 60 recordings with labels such as Philips, Sony, EMI, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and Glossa.
