Event Type: Music, Jazz
Award-winning violinist Tim Kliphuis (NL) is a legend in the gypsy world. His Trio with Nigel Clark (guitar) and Roy Percy (bass) re-defines the music of J.S. Bach, Django and the Chieftains to create an intensely moving concert experience.
Hot off the heels of their second release with Sony Classical, "Concertos", the Trio take to the road again for their 12th season, having racked up successes at classical festivals, concert halls, competitions and clubs worldwide. A continuing journey into the heart and soul, they play only one genre: MUSIC.
Award-winning Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis has created a brand-new style that embraces classical, gypsy jazz and folk. Hailed as a `current-day improvising Paganini`, his inclusive approach to music has united audiences and is influencing a new generation of string players.
After his master`s degree in classical violin at the Amsterdam Conservatoire, Kliphuis studied with the European Sinti gypsies. He recorded and toured with gypsy guitar legends Fapy Lafertin, The Rosenberg Trio and Angelo Debarre.
An invitation to the Richard Strauss Festival in Germany kick-started Kliphuis` crossover career, celebrating a `total music` without stylistic barriers. He performed for the Dutch King at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, for Celtic Connections Glasgow, at the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine and toured America, South Africa and Russia extensively.
In 2015, The Tim Kliphuis Trio (Nigel Clark, guitar and Roy Percy, double bass) premiered Vivaldi-based `Reflecting the Seasons` which was recorded on Sony Classical in 2016; `Brandenburg`, based on Bach, and the Kliphuis Violin Concerto followed in 2018.
In between Trio tours and orchestral projects, the Tim Kliphuis Sextet with string players Janneke van Prooijen, Frank Brakkee and Charles Watt continues to wow audiences across Europe.
