A disciple of Jan Vermeulen, Jan Michiels and André De Groote, Piet Kuijken completed his studies at the Indiana University with Menahem Pressler. He is now piano and pianoforte teacher at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels and at the Conservatorium in Antwerp. He also teaches chamber music at the Orpheus Instituut in Ghent. His collaborations with his father Wieland and his uncle Barthold Kuijken, but also with artists and ensembles like Marcel Ponseele, Oxalys or the Ensemble Explorations, have drawn the attention upon his great talent, already noticed and rewarded by several magazines (Choc from Le Monde de la Musique, Diapason d'Or...). Much appreciated in Japan, Piet Kuijken recently released a superb live version of the Mozart's K467 Concerto along with the Tokyo Bach Mozart Orchestra (Denon). He enters into the Fuga Libera catalogue with a fascinating journey in the years 1838-39, when Schumann, madly in love with Clara, expresses his feelings in many piano masterpieces, some more famous than, others. This journey is offered on an extraordinary 1850 Johann Baptist Streicher pianoforte, an instrument much appreciated by Clara and Robert Schumann. For those who doubt the value of period instruments for the great romantic generation, here is a stunner which will modify their perception of this music.
