Solo Bassoon

Jacob Dam Fredens


My education: The Jydske Conservatory of Music and the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam.

My favorite musical composition: Well I definitely have more than one. Cavalleria Rusticana (Mascagni), Pagllacci (Leoncavallo), Ariadne Auf Naxos (Strauss), Bohem (Puccini), Scottish  Symf. (Mendelssohn), Symphony #1 by Carl  Nielsen, Trio Sonatas by Zelenka, and many many more…

My greatest musical experience: Playing Schubert’s 9. Symphony with Pavo Berglund and the Ring Cycle in the Copenhagen Opera House.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: Every day that I get to come to work!

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: Spending time with my family, cooking, and riding my motorcycle.
