Bart Coen

Bart Coen studied at The Royal Conservatory of his native town Antwerp. Ever since he is very active both as a soloist and in renowned groups such as a.o. Huelgas Ensemble (Paul Van Nevel – medieval and renaissance), Concerto Vocale (René Jacobs – baroque operas), Collegium Vocale (Philippe Herreweghe – Bach cantatas) and La Petite Bande (Sigiswald Kuijken). With those groups he recorded a large number of cd’s (Sony, Harmonia Mundi France, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Accent, Ricercar, Phi, Deutsche Grammophon,..) and gave concerts worldwide.

With his own ensemble Per Flauto Bart Coen recorded for Sony the successful cd’s “Manoscritto di Napoli 1725” and “The London Flute”.

For Accent he recorded with La Petite Bande the Bach Brandenburg Concertos, and their cd “Telemann: Concertos en Suites” received a 10 from the Dutch music magazine Luister.

Anne Teresa (Rosas) invited Bart Coen to be the musical leader in the production “En Atendant”, a performance combining medieval music with contemporary dance, and with the same dance-ensemble a new production is planned around the Brandenburg Concertos by Bach, in which he participates as recorder-player.

Bart Coen is recorder teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and at the Luca-School of Arts, Campus Lemmens.
