Nina Reintoft

My instrument: Sylvester cello.

My education: The Royal Academy of Music, Århus with Harro Ruijsenars then the Royal Danish Academy of Music with Torleif Thedéen. Private studies with Asger Lund Christiansen, William Pleeth and Truls Mørk.

My favorite musical composition: Beethovens late string quartets.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: During a performance of Sleeping Beauty a little girl sitting in the first row dropped her teddy right down on one of the timpani drums. It was really loud and most people probably thought it was the timpani player falling asleep and dropping one of his mallets!

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: The family takes up a lot of time, but I also enjoy playing chamber music whenever possible.
