Wie ben ik?

Bas Treub (The Hague, 1987) is a Dutch violinist. He studied with Peter Brunt and Philippe Graffin at the Royal Conservatoires of The Hague and Brussels and graduated summa cum laude for his Master’s degree in 2013.

Bas presently holds the position of Principal 2nd violin in the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. He has been engaged as guest concertmaster of the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orpheus Sinfonia. As Principal 2nd violin he has been invited as a guest with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Scottish Ensemble, the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. Next to that he performs as a freelance violinist with ensembles such as the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, London Sinfonietta and Spira Mirabilis. Bas used to be a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra for many years and served as their concertmaster during his last seasons.

A passionate chamber and orchestral musician, Bas has performed at international festivals and venues like the BBC Proms, Aldeburgh Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Abu Dhabi Festival, Carnegie Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington, Konzerthaus Berlin, Wigmore Hall and Concertgebouw Amsterdam. As an orchestral leader he worked closely with renowned musicians such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Isabelle Faust and Gautier Capuçon.

Bas has a special love for performing orchestral music in a chamber music manner; with lots of freedom, individuality and spirit. It is his sheer belief that music making should always be about creating, rather than reproducing. He enjoys performing music from all periods and in different settings.

Bas plays on a beautiful violin made by Emile Germain in Paris in 1891, generously loaned to him by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation.
