Jacques Ogg harpsichord
Jacques Ogg is a performer and recording artist on both harpsichord and fortepiano, as well as a conductor. He teaches at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. He was born in Maastricht (The Netherlands) and studied harpsichord in the city of his birth with Anneke Uittenbosch. In 1970 he went to study with Gustav Leonhardt at the Amsterdam Conservatory, from which he graduated in 1974.
Jacques Ogg’s current activities include solo recitals on harpsichord or on fortepiano, concerts with flautist Wilbert Hazelzet as a duo as well as in a trio-formation either with viola da gamba player Jaap ter Linden or with cellist Christiaan Norde. He is a member of the Orchestra of the 18th Century and has performed regularly with Concerto Palatino. He is frequently invited to conduct masterclasses and summer courses, among others in Juiz de Fora (Brazil) and Buenos Aires, in Mateus (Portugal), Salamanca (Spain) as well as in Cracow (Poland), Prague and Budapest. He was invited as a juror in competitions such as “Bach Wettbewerb” (Leipzig) and “Prague Spring”. Jacques Ogg is artistic director of the Lyra Baroque Orchestra in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
Marc Destrubé violin
Vancouver violinist Marc Destrubé is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster or director of orchestras and divides his time between performances of the standard repertoire on modern instruments, and performing baroque and classical music on period instruments. He has appeared as soloist and guest director with symphony orchestras in Victoria, Windsor and Halifax as well as with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Lyra Baroque and Portland Baroque Orchestra. He is first violinist with the Axelrod String Quartet, quartet-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., a member of the Turning Point Ensemble in Vancouver specializing in 20th century music and new music, and first violinist of the newly-formed string quartet Microcosmos. He is also co-concertmaster of the Orchestra of the 18th Century (Amsterdam) with whom he has toured the major concert halls and festivals of Europe, North America, Japan, China and Australia, including as soloist and leader. He was artistic director of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra from its founding in 1991 until 2007. He is a frequent guest on the Early Music Vancouver concert series.
A highly-respected teacher, he gives annual classes at international academies in Vancouver and Oberlin and has been an invited teacher at the Paris, Moscow and Utrecht Conservatoires, Indiana University, Case Western University, the University of Victoria and the Macphail School.
Wilbert Hazelzet flute
Wilbert Hazelzet has dedicated himself since 1970 exclusively to the baroque flauto traverso. He studied the ancient instrumental techniques and the performance of the music from the 18th century according to contemporary treatises about flute playing and singing. Considered by many as the world’s leading baroque flute player, in 1978 he became a member of Musica Antiqua Köln, and with this world-famous ensemble he appeared in Japan, India, China, the USA, Canada, and all over Europe, from Finland to Portugal and from Ireland to Russia.
He now forms permanent duos with harpsichordist Jacques Ogg and with lutenist Konrad Junghänel. He is the first flautist of Ton Koopman’s Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, has appeared for numerous radio and TV stations across the world and has recorded for several companies such as DGG, Erato, Harmonia Mundi, and, in recent years, Glossa. Wilbert Hazelzet is a Professor at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
