Celebrated organist, harpsichordist and conductor Ton Koopman is celebrated as one of the foremost authorities on early music worldwide. As founder of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, Koopman is a leading figure in the "authentic performance" movement. As a soloist, he has recorded the complete works of Dietrich Buxtehude and is renowned for his interpretations of repertoire ranging from the early Baroque to the late Classics. He stops, he says, "at Mozart's death".
