Daniël Brüggen studied the recorder at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam under the tuition of Kees Boeke, and graduated there as a soloist in 1983. During his conservatory studies he founded the Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Recorder Quartet along with three fellow students. As a soloist he has performed with several ensembles such as London Baroque, and works regularly with harpsichordist Siebe Henstra. He is currently teaching at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and is a regular visiting professor of the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he has been appointed as Honorary Associate. He specializes in coaching early music ensembles as well as recorder consorts.
In recent years he has been increasingly active as a filmmaker and director, producing several classical music clips for, among others, The Royal Wind Music, Zefiro and L’Armonia Sonora en Seldom Sene. He also produces instrumental portraits (Ricercata, 2011) and music documentaries (Sweelinck fantasies, 2008, The Leiden choirbooks, 2010).
