Hear the bassoon as you’ve never heard it before. Bram demonstrates - both musically and verbally - the huge range and multiple colours of his instrument. From Baroque to rock, experimentation is the name of tonight’s game with two world premiere works and a new electric guitar-effect pedal adding a dynamic new dimension to this engaging musician’s performance.

Bram van Sambeek was the first bassoonist ever to win the Dutch Music Prize. He sees no boundaries in his music making and is keen to commission new work as well as collaborate with musicians from other musical genres such as jazz and rock music. He regularly performs with some of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors. He won his BBT Award in 2011 and has used part of it to co-commission a new concerto from Finnish composer Sebastian Fagerlund which he premiered in December 2014.
