Welcome to our website in 2020! We are building our concert programme for the year – confirming dates and venues. A number of definite dates are given in the diary pages, and more will be added soon.

Meanwhile, our recordings on CD are available. These now comprise the twelve CDs released on the Hyphen Press Music label and two on the Coviello Classics label. All can be bought here. Note also that the Hyphen Press CDs can be bought as a set, for a special price.

Interview with Jaap Schröder

January 2020 – News

Jaap Schröder died on 1 January 2020, the day after his 94th birthday (he was born on 31 December 1925). Jaap was my godfather and my teacher on ‘modern’ violin during my studies at the Amsterdam Conservatoire in the 1970s. Our families lived on either side of the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. Jaap had a French wife – Agnès – and so did my father Frans Moonen, who was also a musician. Both couples had families of three girls. Some of us went to the same secondary school, the Spinoza Lyceum. We have always stayed in touch. Nicolette Moonen
