Duo Dulfer & Witteveen

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Bassoonist Thomas Dulfer and saxophonist Deborah Witteveen are both up-and-coming talents in the classical music world. Already at a young age they separately won prizes at the Princess Christina Classic Competition and were awarded the Classic Young Masters Award. A close musical friendship developed and since 2017 they have been performing together. In season 2022-2023, they were finalists of the prestigious ‘Dutch Classical Talent’, a talent development programme with a tour of fifteen Dutch concert halls.

For Gaudeamus Festival 2023, they go back to their roots: three winners of the Princess Christina Composition Competition and young composer Jinwook Jung are developing brand new works for the duo, which will be premiered this evening. The composers will be accompanied by coach Jonás Bisquert throughout the composition process.
