Belgium, 1944. Sigiswald Kuijken (baroque violin and viola da gamba) was born in 1944 near Brussels. Member of the Alarius Ensemble, with his brothers and R. Kohnen, G. Leonhardt and others, he has toured Europe, USA, Australia and Japan. He has recorded most of Bach's major chamber music and solo violin repertoire as well as Corelli, Vivaldi, Mozart, etc In 1972 he formed the baroque orchestra La Petite Bande, with which he recorded music by Lully, Rameau, Händel and others. In 1986 the Kuijken String Quartet was formed, which specialises in the repertoire of Haydn and Mozart. He completed his violin studies in Bruges and Brussels in 1964. His early contact with ancient music strongly influenced his playing. In 1969 he began to re-establish the old technique, without using chin or shoulder rest, influencing many players. He continued to teach this technique at the Hague Conservatory from 1971 to 1996. Since 1993, he has been teaching the baroque violin at the Brussels Conservatory. In 2004, he reintroduced the violoncello da spalla (shoulder-cello), the instrument which J. S. Bach and many of his colleagues had in mind when referring to 'violoncello'.
