• Welcome to my new site!


    Welcome! I hope you’ll enjoy having a look around my new site designed by Pilvax Studio and that you’ll like Balazs Borocz’s great ‘Amsterdam photos’ as much as I do. They were taken over 2 days at the end of June, on the roof of my building (with a rather lovely sunset in the background), and the next day at the Muziekgebouw and around the Jordaan, 10 minutes walk from my flat. I look forward to staying in touch with you through this site, and my FB page!


    Here are a couple of pics of the photo sessions, on my roof in Amsterdam


  • Autumn concerts


    I’m looking forward to some fun and diverse concerts this autumn: first I’m off to Poland, directing the Baltic Neopolis Orchestra in Sczecin, then I’m greatly looking forward to performing by beloved Korngold Concerto with HET Symfonieorkest in Enschede at the end of October. The next day it’s off to Bucharest for the 10th Sonoro Festival, with a hop over to Joensuu in Finland in the middle of that, to perform the beautiful American Seasons by Philip Glass. A few weeks later there are two trips to New York, first to perform the Vivaldi/Piazzolla Eight Seasons with the Arcos Chamber Orchestra, and then to celebrate 10 years of Sonoro at Weill Hall at Carnegie hall with dear friends Diana Kettler, Razvan Popovic and Julian Arp (Strauss and Dohnanyi). Then there are Brodsky Quartet dates in Düsseldorf, Dornbirn, Bristol, Leeds, Perth, a few others and (looking forward to..) Istanbul. With the ChamberJam Europe friends we perform tango close to home in Leiden, and I’m looking forward to guesting with the Signum Quartet and Jörg Widmann in Berlin. In December there’s another Vivaldi/Piazzolla Eight seasons, with the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast, a concert that will be recorded by the BBC. I hope to see you at one of these dates, if you’re in the area! :)

  • Premiere of 'Daniel's Tango'


    It was wonderful to perform the premiere of Marcelo Nisinman’s ‘Daniel’s Tango’ at the Stift Festival in August. Marcelo says: “The piece is dedicated to Daniel, a portrait of himself I imagined. A barbarian-tango-love piece.” This brilliant, hilarious, touching, totally imaginative piece made me very happy, and the first performance with the dream team of Marcelo, Diana Ketler, Uxia Martinez Botana and Thomas Carroll was a total joy!! I hope you like this unique piece by a very unique composer as much as I do! 

    Here’s the video:
