is an international ensemble based in The Netherlands that plays over 60 concerts a year in Holland and abroad. We have invited guests such as Giovanni Sollima, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Aisslinn Nosky, Dorothee Mields, and others. Although baroque music is key, we build bridges to other musical styles as well. Four violinists have found their place as regular players in the ensemble and three violinists and one cellist join the orchestra on a regular basis since Holland Baroque started offering this training course. Joining the training course is a chance to get to know the ensemble as well as improving your own skills and deepening your career as baroque musician.Samama Fellowship
Holland Baroque offers the opportunity to gain experience and build a network in an exciting Dutch, first class baroque ensemble. The offer consists of a one-year training course for Early Music students.
Leo Samama is a composer, musicologist, director, writer and member of the board for many dutch ensembles. As a true father he watches over the entire music life in the Netherlands. We have great respect for his many talents and we are grateful for his significance for the sector. Therefore we have named our fellowship after him. Besides playing in the orchestra, during the training course you will also receive master classes given by Leo Samama, Judith and Tineke Steenbrink (artistic team Holland Baroque) and other specialists. The classes will make you reflect on several subjects such as ‘baroque is now’ and ‘why composers in the 18th century never needed a notebook’.
