Holland Symfonia

Since 1994 I am principal in Holland Symfonia. I am proud to be part of this orchestra and enjoy playing there. Our orchestra is very versatile, we play many different styles of music and that is a great challenge.

Being principal of a bass-group is something special. It's a real thrill for instance to play a pizzicato exactly together. But also frasing together, making dynamic differences and playing with direction is great if you do it together.

Playing together in a bassgroup is an invitation to put the qualities of all the players together. It is the diversity of all the players that creates an unique sound.

In order to achieve that, everyone has to be able to be themselves and trust the others. If you play from your own intuition with awareness for eachother, the fundament for being a group is made.
