Dutch singer Harry van der Kamp is recognized as one of the most important basses in the solo and ensemble repertoire of the 14th–18th centuries. His 30-year career has taken him from New York to Peking. He has performed with all the leading Baroque specialists and can be heard on more than 100 CDs. Van der Kamp is professor of voice at the Hochschule für Künste Bremen, Germany.

Performer and scholar Edoardo Bellotti of Italy has dedicated himself to the study of the Renaissance and Baroque keyboard repertoire, with particular attention to the basso continuo tradition and improvisation. He was one of the expert consultants for the restoration of the Italian Baroque organ. Promenade, his critically acclaimed recording on the instrument, features works chosen to accompany artworks from the MAG collection.
