In front of the orchestra is the conductor. The conductor decides how the orchestra should play. Louder, softer, faster, slower, more brass, fewer violins, etcetera. But invisible to the audience, there is usually an assistant conductor in the game as well. So what does such an assistant conductor do? Is the assistant a personal helper who runs for the conductor where [....]

'Here is top-quality, highly enjoyable chamber-scale Bruckner for people drawn'

April 29, 2023
Here is top-quality, highly enjoyable chamber-scale Bruckner for people drawn, say, to the arrangements commissioned by the Viennese "Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen" a century ago. Or it might also suit people who couldn't resist the glorious sleaze and squeeze of Uri Caine's "Wagner e Venezia" (1997). Or could it also be a means to soften [...]

Even as a conductor, you must never forget: we are all human beings

September 14, 2021
Look at Rolf Verbeek's agenda in these months after corona and you immediately see: here we are dealing with a busy man. Cities like Munich, Copenhagen, Antwerp, Maastricht, Paris and Amsterdam pass by. Nizhny Novgorod, formerly Gorky in Russia, is crossed out for the well-known reasons. Occupation: conductor.

He walks down the stairs of his student apartment above café Merlijn on Groningen's Meeuwerderweg on July 2. Once outside, he gets on his bicycle.
