Discussion about historical instruments

In the 1960’s and 70’s, Baroque music was increasingly performed on instruments from the seventeenth or eighteenth centuries, or copies of them, but this was not the case at the Bach Society.

In the Holland Festival Magazine, Charles de Wolff explained why the Netherlands Bach Society was still not working with historical instruments. Around ten years later, this became even more contentious, resulting in a big argument between De Wolff and the board.
