Arno Bornkamp


Dutch saxophonist Arno Bornkamp is the archetype of the modern virtuoso, feeling equally at home in traditional and contemporary repertoire. Bornkamp studied at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam with Ed Bogaard and graduated in 1986 with the highest distinction. He has won many awards, the 'Silver Laurel of the Concertgebouw' and the 'Netherlands Music Prize' among the most noteworthy. The latter enabled him to go abroad, studying in France with Daniël Deffayet and Jean-Marie Londeix, in Japan with Ryo Noda as well as working with composers such as Luciano Berio and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Since his 1982 solo debut in Rome he has played more than 200 concerts with orchestras around the world. Bornkamp is the ambassador of the music of JacobTV.  Jacob wrote his ‘Tallahatchie Concerto’ for him. Composers like Joey Roukens, Peter van Onna, Chiel Meijering, Simon Burgers, Fabrizio de Rossi Re, Carlos Michans and Christian Jost have also dedicated their saxophone concertos to him. For over 30 years, Bornkamp has been a member of two groups: the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet and a duo with pianist Ivo Janssen. The many CDs he has made since 1990 have garnered national and international praise. Arno Bornkamp is a renowned teacher, leading an international saxophone class at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. He also teaches at various masterclasses around the world.
