Charles Toet

Charles Toet (The Hague) studied modern trombone at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague with Anne Bijlsma (senior) and Arthur Moore where he graduated in 1974. His interest in early music was provoked by a Monteverdi project that took place in 1972. Since 1975 he has worked at the Royal Conservatoire, where he continues to work to this day. Since 1996 he also teaches at the Musikhochschule in Trossingen and since 2000 at the Schola Cantorium Basiliensis (Basel). Currently he divides his time playing 17th century music (especially with the ensemble Concerto Palatino, which he co-founded with Bruce Dickey in 1987), and the classical and romantic repertoire on period instruments played with orchestras such as Bach Collegium Japan (Masaaki Susuki ), The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra (Ton Koopman), and the Orchestra des Champs-Elysées (Philippe Herreweghe).

He is also a welcome guest at early music courses and projects.  
He has performed and collaborated on numerous CD productions with Bruce Dickey and Concerto Palatino, and many other ensembles that specialise in the performance of early music, such as Syntagma Musicum Amsterdam (Kees Otten), The Taverner Players of London (Andrew Parott ), the Hilliard ensemble, Hesperion XX (Jordi Savall), La Petite Bande (Sigiswald Kuijken), the vocal ensemble Currende, Tragicomedia (Stephen Stubbs), and Cantus Cölln (Konrad Junghänel).
