Since her breakthrough in 1984 winning the Eurovision Young Musician of the Year, Isabelle van Keulen can now look back on many years of musical diversity. Not only is it always vital for her to approach the musical score with honesty and with an extremely conscious approach to interpretation, she also strives to communicate with her audiences and musical partners, allowing her to perform in an inspirational, lively and enthusiastic manner. Her versatility lies in the fact that she not only plays the violin, but viola too, as well as directing chamber orchestra performances. Her music making embraces more than 20 years of intense collaboration with the Dutch pianist Ronald Brautigam, concerts with mezzo Christianne Stotijn, performing/directing the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, combining violin and viola in one appearance, founding a chamber music festival – from 1997 until 2006 Isabelle van Keulen was Artistic Director of the Delft Chamber Music Festival – giving masterclasses and solo engagements with orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo. Above all, being faithful to the music is her highest priority.
