Dutch Violin Sonatas (2012)

Schlegel, van Eijken, Buys

Bob van der Ent, Rene Rakier

Thanks to the well-known Dutch violinist, Willem Noske (1918-1995, a great advocate of those Dutch  composers who have been unjustly forgotten), several works from these Dutch composers, dating from around 1840- 1930, have been assessed as works of international quality. This also includes the three sonatas of Schlegel, van Eijken and Brandts Buys, which are recorded on this CD. 
Pianist René Rakier, who performed and worked with Willem Noske for  several years, and violinist Bob van der Ent, met one another at the Dutch  Music Institute during the presentation of Willem Noske’s biography. They decided to bring several sonatas by these Dutch composers back to the public’s attention. 

 

In the meantime, they have already made several successful appearances at numerous chamber music events, as well as for radio and television. The above-mentioned sonatas have been released on this CD to ensure that they do not fall into oblivion again

Bob van der Ent

The young Dutch violinist Bob van der Ent has received wide acclaim for his impeccable technique, seasoned interpretations and characteristic style.
With his recording of Paganini’s 24 caprices,  Bob van der Ent has become the first Dutch violinist of his generation – and one of just a few in the world – to have released the entire cycle.His debut album Dutch Violin Sonatas, released in 2013 on Aliud Records, was an international success, receiving rave reviews in OpusKlassiek and International Record Review.

 In 1993 Bob van der Ent was one of the youngest students admitted to the special Young Talent department at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. There he studied violin with Jan Repko and Vesko Eschkenazy (the concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), with additional classes from Davina van Wely and Herman Krebbers. Bob van der Ent attended masterclasses at home and abroad from the likes of Donald Weilerstein, Eduard Grach, Ivry Gitlis and Pierre Amoyal. After auditioning, he was admitted to the course given by Shmuel Ashkenazy at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

 Bob van der Ent won first prizes from a very young age at Iordens Violin Competition (the Netherlands’ national contest for young violinists) and the Prinses Christina Competition. While still studying, he was a prizewinner at the National Oskar Back Violin Competition and also received a special award at the world-renowned international Wieniawsy-Lipinsky Competition in Poland.
