Discography: (NL) Lucie Horsch CD Released: "Antonio Vivaldi" (Decca Classics, Oct 2016)

Contributed by admin on Dec 09, 2016

"Seventeen-year-old Lucie Horsch is one of the most remarkable musical talents of her generation, and already in great demand as a solo recorder player both in her native Netherlands and internationally.  ...

Lucie’s remarkable talent has been widely recognised. At the age of nine, her televised performance of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No 5 at a popular concert on the Prinsengracht canal under conductor Jurjen Hempel caused something of a national sensation. In 2014, she was chosen to represent Holland in the Eurovision Young Musician contest, performing Vivaldi’s Concerto per flautino (RV 443) in the final. As a result of her appearance, she was invited to perform in the Norsjø Chamber Music Festival in Norway and with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra in Canada.

She has also performed at the Early Music Festival in Innsbruck, Austria, the Next Generation Festival in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, the Grachtenfestival Amsterdam, the International Chambermusic Festival Utrecht, the International Organ Festival Haarlem and the Flanders Festival in Ghent. In 2016 she won the prestigious Concertgebouw Young Talent Award, which she was given in the presence of Sir John Eliot Gardiner. ...

Lucie is signed to the Decca Classics label. Her debut disc contains concertos and transcriptions of works by Vivaldi, a composer with whom Lucie feels a particular affinity.

Passionately eager to break down preconceptions about the instrument, Lucie is proud to be an ambassador for the recorder. She is also keen to experiment and push boundaries: she also performs contemporary repertoire and equally loves jazz and pop music. Lucie plays on recorders built by Fred Morgan, Doris Kulossa, Stephan Blezinger and Seiji Shirao, which she acquired with the generous support of the Prins Bernhard Foundation. She also gratefully uses a specially designed tenor flute from Tokyo." ...
