The programme of this album is entirely devoted to the harpsichord music of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), played on a precious Vaudry instrument. Two pieces were recorded earlier, but on different instruments- a Taskin (1669/1979) and a Giusti (1679/1977). Johan Brouwer (1943) studied organ under Wim van Beek and music theory under Frans van Eeden at the Groningen conservatory, then harpsichord at the Amsterdam conservatory. After his soloist exam he took up further studies with Gustav Leonhardt. Johan Brouwer followed masterclasses by Ton Koopman, René Saorgin and Jos van Immerseel. Johan Brouwer has given concerts in the Netherlands, France, Portugal, England, Sweden and Germany and as leader/harpsichordist formed part of the Groningen baroque orchestra Collegium Musicum, concentrating not just on the great traditional works of the baroque but also on unknown work from the 17th and 18th centuries. He also worked for a long time as conductor of the Winschoten Chamber Choir, with which he performed much 17th century music together with the Collegium Musicum Groningen.
