Jacob van Eyck

Explore the musical world of Jacob van Eyck (c1589/90-1657), one of the most remarkable figures in Dutch musical life during the Golden Age: a nobleman, blind from birth, widely known as a carillonneur, leading expert in the field of bell casting and tuning, and... admired as a brilliant recorder virtuoso. His demanding solo variations, preludes and fantasias from Der Fluyten Lust-hof are both loved and feared by recorder players today, all over the world.
