The Men



Ernst Reijseger probably is the most controversial cellist in the world.

All kind of techniques, which you don’t learn in school, are used.

And with that he places himself in the category of musicians which can be considered as pioneers on their instrument.


Being an inovator he is much asked as a partner all over the world.


Born in 1954 he received the VPRO Boy Edgar Award, when he was only 29 years old. (1985)

Later he could add the Bird Award (North Sea jazz festival) to his list.


Ernst is a member of the  ICP, was one of the members of the  Clusone trio but plays with all kind of musicians both in the field of jazz and contemporary music.


The pictures below I made at the BIMhuis when he was performing there with Italian Luciano Biondini and the French  Franse tubaist  Michel Godard.







On 25 March 2009 the trio Biondini /Godard / Reijseger again was active in the Netherlands .

Paradox invited them because of a Accordeon festival called Accordeon slag.


The audience was breathless and the enthusiasm was shown by long lasting applause.
