Lucie Horsch

Nineteen-year-old Lucie Horsch is in great demand as a solo recorder player both in her native Netherlands and internationally. Born into a family of professional musicians, she began her recorder studies at the Muziekschool van Amsterdam at the age of five. Only four years later, her televised performance of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance no. 5 created a national sensation. In 2011 she moved to the prestigious Sweelinck Academie at the Amsterdam Conservatorium, where she studies with Walter van Hauwe. Also a talented pianist, she was a member of the National Children’s Choir for seven years, and in 2014 was chosen to represent The Netherlands in the Eurovision Young Musician contest. In 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Concertgebouw Young Talent Award.

The 2018/19 season sees Lucie Horsch make her debut with the Hong Kong Philharmonic and Macedonian Philharmonic orchestras, embark on a tour with the Academy of Ancient Music, and work with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, Residentie Orkest of The Hague, the Arnhem Philharmonic and Staatsorchester Kassel.

Her debut CD featured concertos and other works by Vivaldi, for which she received the prestigious Edison Klassiek Award in 2018. Her second disc, scheduled for release in February 2019, was recorded with the Academy of Ancient Music and features works by Sammartini, Bach and Handel. She plays on recorders by Frederick Morgan, Seiji Hirao, Stephan Blezinger and Friedrich von Huene.
