Over 15 years of teaching students of all levels, from beginners to conservatory students and professional musicians.
Performing solo recitals, concerts with orchestra and bands, studios recordings, theater productions (Lion King, Beauty and the beast, Billy Elliot, Miss Saigon) in a variety of venues and festivals in The Netherlands and elsewhere.
In his new jazz album, pianist Guillaume Marcenac invites the Dutch voices Nadja Filtzer, Jurgen Donkers, Tess, Bryony Burns and Patricia Wisse, to give a new boost to the old French songs from his childhood. Their tone transforms these popular melodies with their gypsy jazz colours, brought about by the piano-double bass-guitar trio.
Each arrangement reflects many palettes and colors of the pianist’s musical universe, sublimating the singers’ different timbres and styles: cabaret for Nadja, Swing for Jurjen, modern jazz for Patricia, french glamour for Tess and sensuality for Bryony.
