In Leipzig, Ton Koopman delivers a passionate performance of Bach's Magnificat.
The name of Ton Koopman is closely linked with Baroque music, in the same way as that of Gustav Leonhardt with whom he studied the harpsichord at the Amsterdam conservatory, the Mecca of the Baroque "revival" at the beginning of the sixties. An organ and harpsichord player, Ton Koopman founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra then the Amsterdam Baroque Choir. It is with these two ensembles that we see him several decades later in 2003 in Leipzig.
