From the Düben Collection: Music that deserves to be heard

The extraordinary Düben Collection contains over 2,000 manuscripts of 17th and early-18th century music by more than 300 European composers, collected by members of the Düben family and donated to Uppsala University in 1732. The collection is thought to include the music library of the Royal Swedish Court, where four of the Dübens served as kapellmeisters from 1640 to 1726.

La Modestine (Marc Destrubé and Linda Melsted, violins, Natalie Mackie, viola da gamba, and Michael Jarvis, harpsichord and organ) will perform a selection of rarely-heard gems from the collection, including sonatas by Buxtehude, Becker and Reincken.
