Eduard Melkus

With recordings of over 200 seventeenth- and eighteenth-century works, Eduard Melkus is a prolific representative of the first wave of historically-informed performers. With Alice and Nikolaus Harnoncourt he was present at the dawn of the post-World War II early music movement—an important precursor to the more recent band of scholars who have advanced our knowledge of historical performing techniques much further. Melkus’s individual style is, not too surprisingly, a dubious embodiment of period playing as we understand it today. He uses either original instruments or modern reproductions, but his steel strings, chin-rest and ubiquitous vibrato mask any stylistic elements he might attempt to convey.
