Dutch recorder player Kees Boeke studied at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (recorder with Frans Brüggen and cello with Anner Bijlsma), where he graduated with honors. He founded the ensemble Quadro Hotteterre (1968-1988) together with fellow recorder student Walter van Hauwe, and was for many years a member of the medieval and Renaissance Ensemble Syntagma Musicum and co-founder of Sour Cream (1972), Little Consort Amsterdam (1978), and the Ensemble Mala Punica (1989). In 2001 he formed the medieval ensemble Tetraktys. In 1996, Kees Boeke began work as musical director for the ensemble Cantica Symphonia with whom he made recordings of motets by Costanzo Festa and masses of Guillaume Dufay. He was invited as a guest conductor by the vocal and instrumental ensemble “L’Homme Arme” in Florence and the ensemble Ars Nova Copenhagen for concerts in Holland, Belgium and Denmark. Over the years, he has collaborated with the Hilliard Ensemble in concerts and recordings of music by Heinrich Isaac, Orlando di Lasso, and Philippe de Monte, and with Philippe Pierlot’s Ricercar Consort and the Concerto delle Viole of Roberto Gini.
