Tobie Miller – Drehleier, Hurdy Gurdy, Vielle a roue
The Canadian singer, hurdy-gurdy and recorder player Tobie Miller is recognized today as an outstanding virtuoso on the baroque hurdy-gurdy, and performs in a number of ensemble formations, including in duo with the Austrian hurdy-gurdy player Matthias Loibner, but also with well-known conductors such as Jordi Savall, Christophe Coin, and Wieland Kuijken. In 2017, together with Ensemble Danguy, she released on the Ricercar label the highly acclaimed CD La Belle Vielleuse, featuring eighteenth-century hurdy-gurdy sonatas. Johann Sebastian Bachs music has been a leitmotiv in Tobie Millers musical life, which is why it was her big dream to adapt his wonderful solo works for the hurdy-gurdy. If Bach knew this instrument, it was most probably as a peasants or beggars instrument. However, during his lifetime, the hurdy-gurdy was a favourite instrument of the French upper classes.
