In a truly interactive recital at Wilton’s Music Hall, London as part of BBT’s Wednesdays at Wilton’s series, Dutch bassoonist Bram van Sambeek (BBT Award Winner 2011) seeks the audiences views on works by Sebastian Fagerlund and Arjan Linker as well as getting them to hum along to Werner Perchner’s mit FaGottes hilfe.
Dutch bassoonist Bram van Sambeek (BBT Award Winner 2011) describes how he’s bringing democracy to the concert platform at Wilton’s Music Hall, in getting the audience to help him choose which composers should go forward to expand works from their initial sketches. Also he demonstrates the wickedness of Werner Pirchner’s mit faGottes hilfe, not least in the illustrated score, complete with a bottle of alcohol.
Dutch bassoonist Bram van Sambeek is a man of gritty determination who relishes challenge and embraces innovation in his mastery of his instrument. Whether as a chamber musician, teacher or soloist, he wants to discover all the colours of his bassoon and free it from misconceptions about its versatility. Our film shows how he stimulates his daily routine of practice and reed-making with constant experimentation, a boundless variety of musical collaboration – and running against the wind.
