Dutch bassoonist wins international prize
Dutch bassoonist Bram van Sambeek has won one of four prestigious Borletti Buitoni Trust awards 2011.
The 30-year-old musician has to spend the prize money - just under 24,000 euros – on study, an instrument, recordings or other expenditure to further his international concert career. As well as being solo bassoonist with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Van Sambeek is in great demand as a chamber musician.
The Borletti Buitoni Trust stimulates the work of young professional musicians from all over the world, “supporting a family of young musicians”.http://cdn.radionetherlands.nl/data/files/bram_van_sambeek000kleiner_0.jpg
