Wouter Vossen

was born in a family with a broad musical tradition. As a student of the renowned pedagogue Herman Krebbers, he graduated with highest distinction from the "Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam". Thereafter he studied in Tel Aviv (Israel) with Professor Chaim Taub.

His main musical interest and passion lies in the field of the chamber music. Together with his brother Marc Vossen (cello) and Bart van de Roer (piano) he established in 1995 the Storioni Trio Amsterdam, named after his beautiful Storioni violin. Right from the beginning, the career of the trio took off. It was awarded several prices, made tours of the Far East, the Middle East and Europe and made their American debut. The Trio performed in most major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Theatre du Chatelet and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.

He holds the position of first concertmaster of the Brabants Orchestra in Eindhoven and is currently teaching at the Fontys University of Fine and Performing Arts.

Wouter is currently playing a rare violin made by Laorentius Storioni (fecit Cremona 1794) and a violin bow by Dominic Peccatte, lent to him for life by the Elise Mathilde Foundation.
