More than any other instrument, the clarinet is a medium for personal dedication to specific virtuosi. Mozart created his clarinet concerto for Anton Stadler, while Max Bruch dedicated his (double) concerto to his son Max Felix. Belgian virtuoso Roeland Hendrikx also plays Gerald Finzi's clarinet concerto, to which he has front row access via his teacher Thea King, doyenne of British clarinetists and spouse of Frederick Thurston, who premiered the Finzi concerto in 1949. Teaming up with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hendrikx pays homage to a genre - the clarinet concerto - it's gems, and it's genius performers. Roeland Hendrikx is one of the leading clarinetists in Belgium. He appeared as a soloist with the Belgian National Orchestra, The Flemish Symphony Orchestra, I Fiamminghi, the Beethoven Academy, the Flemish Radio Orchestra, The Limburg Symphonic Orchestra, the Georgia Philharmonic, the Symphonic Orchestra of Lithuania and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Hagen. Roeland is teaching clarinet at the Maastricht Conservatory (The Netherlands) and the LUCA School of Arts in Leuven (Belgium).
