‘…the Bach Players shone in the Brandenburg when the leader Nicolette Moonen and flautist Marion Moonen duetted the radiant slow movement with transfixing musicality.’ Early Music Today 2019
The Bach Players are known for their engaging programmes of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music. Founded in 1996 by Nicolette Moonen, the group’s artistic director, their main focus at first was on J.S. Bach’s sacred cantatas, performed with small forces. Gradually horizons were expanded to a broader picture of Bach’s time and the circumstances in which these pieces were composed. The Bach Players have toured widely in the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
