There is nothing ordinary about Wilbert Hazelzet. Not the fact that he started his studies of the baroque flute in the 1970s as an autodidact, guided by 18th-century textbooks on singing and flute playing, and tracts dealing with presentation practices, nor the fact that, immediately after joining the Musica Antiqua Köln as a solo flautist in 1978, he rose like a comet to become one of the most respected baroque flute players. A comet is perhaps not the best comparison, because Hazelzet has not disappeared; in fact the opposite is true: he is a flautist in the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, a chamber musician with a busy performance schedule, and a professor at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, HKU Utrecht Conservatorium and the Royal College of Music in England.

Jacques Ogg is a harpsichord and piano soloist, as well as a continuo player in Frans Brüggen’s legendary Orchestra of the 18th Century, which has probably had the greatest impact on the baroque interpretations of 20th-century musicians. Although this should suffice as an introduction, it is only one part of Ogg’s multi-faceted activities. He is the artistic director of the Lyra Baroque Orchestra and is valued as a pianist and harpsichordist. However, of many famous ensemble partners, he is best known for his long collaboration with Wilbert Hazelzet.

In cooperation with the early music festival Tallinn feat. Reval

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event lasts one hour and 45 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission.
