We are delighted to welcome clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe to our roster for General Management.
A former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Annelien achieved international recognition after winning the ARD International Music Competition in Munich in 2012.
Since then, she has performed with leading orchestras such as the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Bavarian Radio Symphony, SWR Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart, Brussels Philharmonic, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and many of the BBC Symphonic and Philharmonic Orchestras; with conductors including Andrew Manze, Joshua Weilerstein, James MacMillan, Rafael Payare, Clemens Schuldt, Markus Stenz, Hartmut Haenchen, Otto Tausk, Marta Gardolińska, Kristiina Poska, Edo de Waart, and Dirk Brossé.
In 2017, Annelien made her BBC Proms debut at Cadogan Hall and in 2018, she performed Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard in a televised Prom from the Royal Albert Hall. In 2018, she won a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award.
Annelien records exclusively for Pentatone; her debut album Belle époque with the Orchestre National de Lille conducted by Alexandre Bloch was released in 2019, garnering her critical acclaim for her ‘warm, elegant tone and easy legato’ (Gramophone) and for ‘her technical skill, her musicianship and her lovely tone, even in the altissimo register’ (BBC Music Magazine).
Annelien Van Wauwe is managed by Cinzia Crescini.
