I am very pleased to welcome you on my website!
The latest updates are now online, stay tuned! (from 18/02/2022)
We can finally perform for full halls now in The Netherlands (!) and traveling abroad for concerts is getting easier and easier, so I have great projects coming up soon!
It was fun to play for the TV program Maestro during this last lock-down, but there is nothing like performing for live audience and connect with the public!
-I am particularly excited about my next solo concert in the beautiful OBA Oosterdork in Amsterdam, in collaboration with the « Institut Français des Pays-Bas »! It will happen on May 13th 2022, at 17.00, together with the French illustrator/cartoonist Vidu! It is a unique concept of illustrated concert/live drawing concert; a performance of 45 minutes, in which Vidu will create a comic book live to the rhythm and colours of my musical journey. It is a unique way of building bridges between two art forms, by allowing them to enter into a dialogue and create an original and improvised live performance. I will be performing 10 challenging solo pieces from the flute repertoire, from baroque to modern. (Marin-Marais, Telemann, Debussy, Honegger, Paganini, Varese,…). Come listen and watch if you are curious!
– My first CD recording project is in the making!!!! And it is very exciting! You will know more soon …
-I was invited as solo flutist to perform the production « Sleeping beauty« ( conductor: Robertas Servenikas) and « Rigoletto » (conductor: Karel Mark Chichon) at the Zürich Opera House (Philharmonia Zürich) over the months of April and June 2022.
-I will also be back to Switzerland to play two amazing concerts with my modern ensemble Collegium Novum Zurich in May and June 2022! The first one on 23rd May 2022, « Diese-r da bin rich! » , collaboration Collegium Novum Zurich and Orchestra la Scintilla, conductor: Tito Ceccherini. The second concert will take place on Saturday June 11th 2022, in the Tonhalle Zurich, « The Nocturnal gregarious wild swine » (Varese, Crawford, Zappa, van Eck).

(in which I will, as usual play, as solo flute with Het Balletorkest).
-I am very happy to show you the result of a rather original photoshoot with my friend and colleague dancer Sandra Quintyn, by the talented photographer Altin Kaftira, in beautiful Amsterdam! Check it out in the gallery!
-Interview by Marion Schopman in the summer issue of « FLUIT« , the dutch Flute magazine from NFG (July 2020), check it out if you can read dutch and get your copy! Look who is on the cover…
