The Belgian harpsichordist, Christiane Wuyts, was born in Antwerp, the town of the harpsichord, and of the Ruckers, a family of great instrument-maker. She was a pupil of masters of the harpsichord in Belgium, Holland and Germany.
Christiane Wuyts went into organ music in just as much depth, alternating with concerts and recordings for Belgian radio and Dutch television. Her study of Baroque music and her research into its performance made her a well-known specialist of 17th and 18th century works, especially renowned for her renditions on ancient instruments.
In 1968 Christiane Wuyts, co-founder of the Baroque ensemble Camerata Belgica, undertook several concert tours throughout Europe. As a soloist, she performed in over 400 concerts. Subsequently, her brief absence from the concert halls allowed her the time to devote herself to an in-depth study of one of the least well-known periods of the life and works of J.S. Bach, the missing link: the early works. During these years of research, she lived with the constant concern for accuracy, subjecting each score, each manuscript, each bar or note to meticulous analysis. Then, aided by her formidable and outstanding instrumental technique she applied this same conscientiousness to the performance of these unrecorded works.
