Erik Bosgraaf

rec, *1980
Classical

Erik Bosgraaf (b. 1980) is a prominent Dutch recorder player and musicologist. His repertoire extends from Vivaldi's Four Seasons to tomorrow's music. Bosgraaf's recording of Jacob Jan Van Eyck's Der Fluyten Lust-Hof sets a new standard and has led to his international breakthrough. Since then, Erik has recorded other best-selling albums, mainly for Brilliant Classics. Together with a guitarist Izhar Elias and harpsichordist Alessandro Pianu, Bosgraaf founded Ensemble Cordevento, which performs at festivals all over the world. Around a hundred pieces have been composed for him, including twelve concertos. In 2011, Pierre Boulez gave Bosgraaf permission to adapt his Dialogue de l'ombre double (initially composed for clarinet). The world premiere of this new version took place at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam and was recorded on the CD in 2015. As a soloist, Erik Bosgraaf has worked with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra under Jaap van Zweden, Residentie Orkest, Noord Nederlands Orkest, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra, Philharmonie Zuidnederland, and other prominent ensembles. He has shared the stage with leading jazz musicians, including saxophone player Yuri Honing and cellist Ernst Reijseger and also made recordings for film makers Werner Herzog and Paul En Menno de Nooijer. Bosgraaf teaches at Conservatorium van Amsterdam and serves as a visiting professor at the Akademia Muzyczna w Krakowie. He has received the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award (2009), Nederlandse Muziekprijs (2011), ECHO Rising Star (2011/2012) and the Northern Dutch music prize Het Gouden Viooltje (2012).
