About me:
Ireen Thomas
lutes & romantic guitar

At a young age I started with the guitar. But at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (Netherlands)
I quickly switched to the lute studying with Toyohiko Satoh, with whom I later published a Catalogue of Contemporary Lute Music. Workshops and private lessons with Hopkinson Smith contributed to my playing.
With the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the direction of Nicolaus Harnoncourt I performed several times in Bach's St. Johns Passion in addition with Edo de Waart as conductor I played in the operatic presentations of Wagner's Meistersinger von Nürnberg . And with the Dutch Chamber Orchestra under Hartmuth Haenchen, Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice. During The Holland Festival of Early Music
I performed Emilio Cavalieri's Rappresentatione di Anima e di Corpo under Frans Moonen as conductor.
In keeping with the lute I have played much chamber music, from very old to very contemporary. From the mediaeval period played with my owl feather plectrum and with singer and musicologist dr. Rebecca Stewart to Mauricio Kagel's Musik für Renaissance Instrumente and the young Greek composer Calliope Tsoupaki.

About ten years ago my first love, the guitar, began to ogle me from the dusty corner in which it had been lying for 20 years. Since then it is particularly the romantic guitar which has inspired me to make several varied programs.
