Dutch Cello Sonatas Foundation

With Frans van Ruth I have played since my student years. We are a tight duo and still are thrilled to play and rehearse together. In 2007 we established the Dutch Cello Sonatas Foundation. Through numerous different projects we want to generate more interest in Dutch music for cello and piano. The past years we have recorded seven CDs; in 2016, we were awarded the important international music award ECHO Klassik.
Besides that we are working on an online catalogue on our website. This catalogue will contain all Dutch compositions for cello and piano from 1830 that we have been able to find.
We have also done a number of educational projects. For instance, we have worked with amateur cellists and pianists in our Album project. Read more about all of this on the website of the Dutch Cello Sonatas Foundation.
