Barthold Kuijken is an eminent leader in the field of early music. A virtuoso traverso soloist, teacher and conductor, he has shaped the fields of historical flutes and historically informed performance over the last 40 years. His book, The Notation Is Not the Music, is an artful summary of his research, ideas, and reflections on music.

A Flemish native of Belgium, Kuijken has widely performed and recorded the repertoire for the Baroque flute. He has collaborated with other early music specialists including his brothers, Sigiswald Kuijken (violin) and Wieland Kuijken (cello and gamba), Frans Brüggen, Gustav Leonhardt (harpsichord), and Paul Dombrecht (oboe). Kuijken is active in publishing scholarly performance editions of 18th-century repertoire.

Kuijken is the artistic director and conductor of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra. Until 2014, he was professor of Baroque flute at the Royal Conservatories of Brussels and The Hague. In addition to playing in the Baroque orchestra La Petite Bande, Kuijken has an active touring schedule throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia.
