    About the Artist
    Dutch saxophonist Arno Bornkamp is the archetype of the modern virtuoso, feeling equally at home in traditional and contemporary repertoire. Hailed as a lyrical musician with a great sense of performance. He has won many awards, the Silver Laurel of the Concertgebouw and the Netherlands Music Prize among the most noteworthy. The latter enabled him to go abroad, studying in France with Daniël Deffayet and Jean-Marie Londeix, in Japan with Ryo Noda as well as working with composers such as Luciano Berio and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Since his 1982 solo debut in Rome, performing the Concertino da Camera by Jacques Ibert, he has played more than two hundred concerts with orchestras around the world, including the most important works from the saxophone repertoire in addition to new concerti written especially for him, such as the Tallahatchie Concerto by Jacob TV. Recently, Bornkamp added three new works to his already large repertoire: Saxophone Concerti by Joey Roukens and Carlos Michans and the Trois Danses (orig. for oboe) by Frank Martin, the last of which he performed with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the XVI World Saxophone Congress in St. Andrews. This fits perfectly into Bornkamp’s ambassadorship for new music: throughout his whole career he has collaborated with composers, such as Martijn Padding, Christian Lauba, Peter van Onna, Otto Ketting, Louis Andriessen, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Simon Burgers, Wijnand van Klaveren, Perry Goldstein and many others. Arno Bornkamp is a renowned teacher, leading an international saxophone class at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
