A Celebration of Bruce Haynes in The Hague

Stimu, the Dutch Foundation for Performance Practice, is honouring the life and contribution of the late Bruce Haynes at an event in The Hague, Netherlands, on January 16. The Montreal-based Haynes was a leading pioneer in the revival of early reed instruments. He was an oboist, champion of historical performance practice, recorder player, musicologist and prolific writer. Together with his wife, gambist Susie Napper, he was a founding member of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. He was also one of the founding fathers of the Early Music Department of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.

The program for the day includes lectures, debates, testimonies of people who knew Haynes, concerts, and the participation of many musicians in new works commissioned for the occasion, including Max van Egmond, Lucy van Dael, Winfried Michel, Jeanette van Wingerden, Ton Koopman, Ku Ebbinge, Eric Hoeprich, Charles Toet, Bruce Dickey, Geoffrey Burgess, Frans Brüggen, Peter Holman, and Alfredo Bernardini, together with the music academy baroque orchestra. An exhibition of 10 very rare oboe d’amore from the Gemeentermuseum will also be part of the offerings. For more information, visit
