I’m a classically trained cellist with an interest in linking the old and the new and more than a decade of experience performing music in a variety of styles to different audiences around the world.
Currently based in Amsterdam, I develop both solo and collaborative performances and projects aimed at casting a new light on the classical repertoire. I also regularly team up with like-minded people on projects at the intersection of classical and contemporary music. Beside my solo projects, I also work with the Cello Octet Amsterdam, orchestral collective s t a r g a z e as well as pianist and composer Chad Lawson.
From solo concerts and chamber music to orchestral performances, tours with internationally acclaimed bands, festivals and the BBC Proms, I’ve got a diverse background and am a versatile musician who’s always on the look out for new challenges.
Let me know if you’d like to work together – I bring my strong work ethic and sense of humour to every project, along with excellent qualifications in the form of a Bachelor Music (Hons 1 and University Medal)/ Bachelor Arts (Philosophy) as well as two master’s degrees (Musikhögskolan i Malmö, Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag).
