VIOLON 1951 : Douzième Prix
Dutch native Kees Kooper began playing piano and violin at age five. He changed early plans for a career in mathematics and engineering to be a professional violinist. He debuted in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, receiving a standing ovation and rave reviews. The New York Times wrote of his New York debut: “a violinist of considerable stature has arrived on the scene… He plays with an eloquence not often heard in our concert halls.” He has been soloist in violin concerti of Mozart, Brahms, Tchaikowski, Prokofieff, Barber, Khachaturian, Berg, and others.

Kees Kooper’s chamber music career parallels his solo work. With the late Mary Louise Boehm, he concertized as the Kooper-Boehm Duo. He also performed with the New York String Sextet, the Cremona Trio, and other ensembles. His name appears on many recordings. From 1976 to 1988 he was concertmaster of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra in Amsterdam. He has held university positions, lectured, and published articles on music. Kees Kooper has given hundreds of concerts in America, Europe, Russia and the Far East, playing in all major capitals of the world. He has performed at New York’s Carnegie, Steinway, Merkin and Town Halls, the Metropolitan Museum, the Frick Gallery and other venues.
