MAARTEN VAN VEEN
Pianist and conductor Maarten van Veen studied at the conservatories of Utrecht, Prague and Amsterdam and with Alwin Bär, Kyoko Hashimoto, Ton Hartsuiker and György Sebök, and at the Mozart Academy with Oleg Maisenberg, Ivan Klánsky and David Golub. A prize-winner at the Orleans Twentieth Century Piano Music Competition in 1996, he and his brother Jeroen van Veen also won First Prize in the Murray Dranoff Two Piano Competition (U.S.A, 1995). He is also artistic director of the HortusFestival, that gives new insight into historical performance. His recent study with Philippe Herreweghe contributes to his broad interest in music.
