About the album

Der Geiger Bob van der Ent stellt drei niederländische Meister in den Mittelpunkt einer hervorragenen Aufnahme mit Violinsonaten.

Leander Schlegel (1844-1913) war ein niederländischer Pianist und Komponist, der nach Studien in seiner Heimat und in Leipzig zahlreiche Konzerte in Frankreich und Deutschland spielte. 1871 wurde er Direktor am Musikkonservatorium in Haarlem. Sein Kompositionsstil wird mit Schumann und Brahms verglichen.
Gerrit Jan van Eijken (1832-1879) studiert zunächst bei seinem Vater, der Organist an der Grote Kerk seiner Heimatstadt Amersfoort tätig war. 1859 lobte ein Landsmann van Eijkens Kompositionen in der Neuen Zeitschrift für Musik, dennoch war ihm nur ein kurzer Erfolg beschieden.
Jan Brandts Bys (1868-1933) spielte bereits mit 13 Jahren virtuos die Orgel und ging von Zutphen (Niederlande) über Frankfurt nach Wien. Johannes Brahms ermunterte das junge Talent zu Kompositionen und so entstanden viele Spielopern sowie sinfonische Werke. Salzburg wurde 1923 seine Wahlheimat, in der viele seiner konzertanten Werke uraufgeführt wurden.

Bob van der Ent

The young Dutch violinist Bob van der Ent has received wide acclaim for his impeccable technique, seasoned interpretations and characteristic style. With his recording of Paganini’s 24 caprices, Bob van der Ent has become the first Dutch violinist of his generation – and one of just a few in the world – to have released the entire cycle. His debut album Dutch Violin Sonatas, released in 2013 on Aliud Records, was an international success, receiving rave reviews in OpusKlassiek and International Record Review.

The young Dutch violinist Bob van der Ent has received wide acclaim for his impeccable technique, seasoned interpretations and characteristic style.

With his recording of Paganini’s 24 caprices, Bob van der Ent has become the first Dutch violinist of his generation – and one of just a few in the world – to have released the entire cycle.

His debut album Dutch Violin Sonatas, released in 2013 on Aliud Records, was an international success, receiving rave reviews in OpusKlassiek and International Record Review.

In 1993 Bob van der Ent was one of the youngest students admitted to the special Young Talent department at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. There he studied violin with Jan Repko and Vesko Eschkenazy (the concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), with additional classes from Davina van Wely and Herman Krebbers. Bob van der Ent attended masterclasses at home and abroad from the likes of Donald Weilerstein, Eduard Grach, Ivry Gitlis and Pierre Amoyal. After auditioning, he was admitted to the course given by Shmuel Ashkenazy at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

Bob van der Ent won first prizes from a very young age at Iordens Violin Competition (the Netherlands’ national contest for young violinists) and the Prinses Christina Competition. While still studying, he was a prizewinner at the National Oskar Back Violin Competition and also received a special award at the world-renowned international Wieniawsy-Lipinsky Competition in Poland.

Following his debut at the age of ten with the Dutch Youth String Orchestra conducted by Roland Kieft, Bob van der Ent went on to perform as a soloist in major violin concertos. He gave his first recital at the age of twelve, and has performed in the United States, Russia and all around Europe, as well as at all important venues and festivals in the Netherlands. He can also be heard on radio and television.

Leander Schlegel

The striking Dutch composer Leander Schlegel was born on 2 February 1844 in Oegstgeest as the third child of the zoologist Hermann Schlegel.
