Not just a compositional technique

Counterpoint is the interaction between different melodies, closely related to making music together and communication through musical voices. Another beautiful interpretation of the word is "something that is different from something else, usually in a pleasing way."

The Counterpoints is an early music ensemble based in The Netherlands. From the moment The Counterpoints began playing together, there was an inspiring dynamic within the group. The members shared an excitement for discovering together all of the colors and emotions embedded in baroque music, and exploring the interactions of the voices in the music. J.S. Bach, an important composer for The Counterpoints, was widely admired as the master of counterpoint.

Hailing from different countries but brought together by their studies of Historical Performance in The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, The Counterpoints also believes in the importance of performing on original instruments or good copies, to bring both performer and audience closer to the soundscape of the Baroque and breathe even more life into the incredible music of the 17th and 18th centuries.
