2nd solo Cello

Kim Bak Dinitzen

My instrument: J B Villaume, 1825.

My education: Royal Danish Academy of Music, Erling Bløndal Bengtsson. Further studies in London with Ralph Kirshbaum.
My favourite composition: Beethoven Trio op.97 ‘Archduke’

My greatest musical experience: To have worked with Austrian condutor Nikolaus Harnoncourt. I particularly remember a performance of Beethoven 9th Symphony at Carnegie Hall with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe which was magical.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: My first Wagner operas were pretty revolutionary. To sit in the pit for up to six hours is at the same same unreal, enjoyable and memorable.

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: Probably touring or spending time in Brazil with my wifes family.
