Rembrandt is a pianist with a broad perspective. He is familiar with the American jazz tradition, but wants to avoid the well-trodden path. Rembrandt is inspired by European classical music and his passion for Arabic music was developed during his two-year stay in Egypt.
The now 40-year-old artist played his music in Birdland in New York. Both in 2007 and 2014 his albums were nominated for the Dutch Grammy Awards.
The Rembrandt Frerichs trio works together with musicians that inspire them; they were invited to play together with Paolo Fresu, Norma Winstone and Trygve Seim and have shared their music on stage with Kayhan Kalhor from Iran, Norwegian accordeonist Frode Haltli and many classical musicians, amongst them violinist Liza Ferschtman, Remy van Kesteren on his harp and oboist Yoram Lachish from Israel.<br><br>&nbsp;“One of the highlights of the North Sea Jazz Festival”
“The Rembrandt Frerichs trio is one of the concerts you have to see on the Madrid Jazz Festival”
