Information: About bundles

A bundle makes it possible to get a better price for a certain set of AEOLUS CDs.

You may have noticed that here on the AEOLUS website certain CDs and SACDs are displayed to be available as part of a "bundle". So what is a bundle? A bundle is a set of several complete AEOLUS CDs. In case you buy a bundle you pay significantly less than you would pay for the single CDs, but you get the exact same CDs, including original packaging and original booklet. 

This way we created bundles e.g. for some of our composer series, e.g. Froberger, Maleingreau, etc. Please find here all bundles on offer.

Please note that these bundles are only available here on the AEOLUS website, not elsewhere.

Bach model Dieupart completely redefined: After intensive research, Bob van Asperen presents for the first time sensational evidence about the life of Dieupart - who did not die impoverished in London, as previously assumed, but rather enjoyed a peaceful retirement in France. Even more important are the insights about the genesis of the original scores and the conclusions Bob van Asperen draws from them with regard to a proper performance of the works.

J.S. Bach was obviously an admirer, quoted an exceptional amount from the suites in a number of his own works, and wrote out copies of them himself – unequivocal proof of the quality of this music, which can possibly now be heard for the first time on a recording as it was originally conceived.
Also to be heard, in addition to the well-known cycle of six suites, are two newly discovered works. In the very extensive booklet text, the world-famous harpsichordist himself elucidates the biography and work of the important Frenchman.
