Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck is seen as one of the most important Dutch composers during the transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque era. Sweelinck wrote more than 70 compositions for keyboard instrument, among which were toccatas, fantasies and variations on sacred and secular melodies. Sweelinck composed these works in a combination of the Spanish organ style, the virtuoso style of the English Virginalists and the style of the style of the Italian masters, creating his own technique which was characterised by clarity, wittiness and moderation.

Only few albums are completely dedicated to Sweelinck's keyboard music. Performed by the amazing Anneke Uittenbosch, this album will be an absolute pleasure to the ear!
