Wie ben ik?

I am a double bassist with an active career as a performer and as a teacher. I play with different ensembles, period instrument and chamber groups, and, give many courses, masterclasses and recitals around the world. I am the Principal double bass with the Netherlands Philarmonic Orchestra in Amsterdam and I teach at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London and at Codarts in Rotterdam. Please see my website to see my full biography and schedule.

I play a double bass by Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi c. 1770 kindly on loan by the Nationaal Muziekinstrumenten Fonds (NMF) since 2018.

This instrument has widened my musical views, sound and my way to play the bass and see the music. It responds and rings freely in all registers and allows me to be flexible to play in different styles, find colours, and, to be versatile when playing solo as well as have a beautiful, present and power sound when playing in a group. It feels as there is no ceiling to keep searching for new sounds, colours and lines I couldnt think of before on a double bass.
