Quotes about Robbert

Philip Harper, conductor of Cory Band:
“Robbert is a meticulous musician who plays with flair, panache and real attention to detail – the complete euphonium player!”


Ivan Meylemans – Conductor of Brass Band Schoonhoven
“Robbert Vos is undoubtedly one of the best euphonium players in the world. His wonderful sound, flawless technique and musical creativity make him a truly top class musician. Robbert’s constant search for, and encouragement of new repertoire makes him an exceptional soloist. In addition, he is also a warm and friendly person. It is not only an honour to have Robbert in the band, but also to be a part of his solo album. I am convinced that this CD will be a world class release.”


Erik Janssen – Conductor
“Robbert improved greatly during the time we worked together. Not just as a musician, conductor, and teacher, but also as a person. His talent, coupled with extraordinary discipline, makes him truly unique. On top of this, his unceasing drive to develop and continually perform at the highest level is impressive, and demands respect. He is an example to others.”


Brass in Concert 2016 Best Soloist Award by adjudicator Katrina Marzella:
“A rich, warm euphonium sound was evident and a real lyricism was on display for all to enjoy (…) A commited and convincing performance from a most impressive soloist. Bravo!”


From 4barsrest.com in 2016, review of Brass in Concert:
‘’Euphonium star, Robbert Vos is superb in Peter Graham’s ‘Red Novae’. This is a
player in total command of his instrument: Fabulous playing appreciated by the audience.


From 4barsrest.com in 2015, quoting Philip Harper; Cory go Dutch:
“We at Cory Band are all delighted to have a chance to work with Robbert Vos on our CD projects. I’ve admired Robbert’s playing ever since I first met him at the European Championships in Rotterdam in 2012. After a succesful concert with him as a soloist in the Netherlands in 2014, he was the perfect choice to help us for our recent CD recordings (Neglected Treasures & In Principal).”   


From 4barsrest.com; review of Eurobrass Drachten 2013:    
“That progressive sense of musicality was further enhanced with Saturday’s 30 minute entertainment programme, which saw Schoonhoven open with ‘Prelude on Tallis’, followed by Robbert Vos underlining his credentials as one of Europe’s leading euphonium players by claiming the ‘Best Soloist’ prize with a superb performance of Nigel Clarke’s ‘The City in the Sea’.” 


From Brassband World Magazine, edition May 2012 about the European Brass Band Championships 2012 by Philip Harper:          
“Brassband Schoonhoven, receiving a hero’s welcome from a sea of orange support, was the other band to play Waespi’s work ‘Audivi Media Nocte’ (…) the high point was the euphonium playing of Robbert Vos, a brilliant musician.”
