Doron Sherwin joins the Early Music Department as Guest Teacher

The early music department proudly announces:

After presenting several masterclasses during the current academic year, Doron Sherwin will be our permanent guest teacher for Cornetto, starting in September 2023. It is still possible to enroll for his class until 31 March 2023. Interested candidates should contact the head of the early music department, Teunis van der Zwart:

Described as "sensational as always" (the New York Times), or simply "Doron Sherwin, l'éxtraterrestre" (Diapason), Doron Sherwin has performed throughout the world on the cornetto for the last forty years.

Born in Hollywood, the son of two jazz singers, he perfected his craft under the guidance of Bruce Dickey, and has regularly performed and recorded alongside Dickey in such internationally acclaimed European ensembles as Hespérion XXI, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, the Taverner Players, the Hilliard Ensemble, Cantus Cölln-- and particularly as a member of Concerto Palatino, recognized as one of the principal ensembles of 17th century music in Europe.

Highly sought after as a specialist in the improvisational traditions of music from the Middle Ages to jazz, his uniquely expressive performing style, inspired by a profound respect and intimate knowledge of the performing traditions of past generations of virtuosi, has become a lively and unmistakable element of the concerts and recordings of a entire generation of ensembles such as L'Arpeggiata, Capriccio Stravagante, Oltremontano, Concerto Italiano, and La Reverdie.
