1999: NPS TV Show ‘Paradiso Life’, with Cristina Branco and Cello Octet Amsterdam (named Conjunto Iberico in those days).

I made an arrangement of the wonderful composition Corpo Iluminado for Cristina and 8 cello’s.

Recorded live at Paradiso, Amsterdam.

The combined forces of Basement Jaxx‘s uniquely skewed take on dance music, the Metropole Orkest‘s cutting edge approach to orchestral interpretation took blaze by storm for two nights at Barbican Centre, London. I could give their ‘Do Your Thing’ a retro-swing-orchestration, whereas I coloured ‘Samba Magic’ with some sounds of Brazilian Big Band Styles…

Here is a small ensemble version I created for DE WERELD DRAAIT DOOR, a daily tv magazine:

This summer I was happy to participate in the Robeco Zomerconcertreeks of Eric Vloeimans. 3 Concerts with the Metropole Orchestra, Marinierskapel and the Paradiso Orchestra. My debut as a solo player in the Concertgebouw on the Vibrandoneon?in my piece ‘Paraiso’ was followed by various orchestrations of Eric’s music. In august I had our finest hour in a concert with Eric, Tania Kross, J?rgen van Rijen and the Paradiso Orchestra. I started the evening on the big Church Organ, played Vibrandoneon, piano and Rhodes and performed Baroque music on a box organ. Also I was very happy to meet the amazing singer Claron Mc Fadden and trumpet player Kyteman!
