What do you enjoy most about being an orchestral musician?

It’s wonderful to be able to bring something bigger, in this case music, to life in a beautiful place, together with many very different people and to have my place right in the midst of this soundscape – preferably in a line-up with the double basses fanned out on the top podium, known as the “Fischer line-up”.

What do you find particularly appealing about playing the bassoon?

I like the way it sounds. You can play melodies, but also the bass. You can get play quite high notes as well as quite low notes. Besides, the sound actually goes well with all the instruments.

What would you be doing if you hadn’t become a musician?

I probably would have studied something in the field of economics and then focused on sustainability and maybe culture.

Is there an instrument other than your own that you would like to master?

The French horn – it sounds almost as beautiful as the bassoon, but can be louder and higher, and there are many great solos for it.

Which composer inspires you the most?

Mozart again and again (also the operas). Beethoven when I play by myself. Operas by Strauss and Wagner. And of course, Bach.
