Kaleidoskop - Works For Contrabassoon
Label: Ars Produktion
Agreda, Hans; Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, members; Kirichenko, Anna
On this production Hans Agreda shows impressively that the prejudices traditionally held against the contrabassoon are incorrect. With this recording he wants to break through boundaries and show positive perspectives. Indeed, the contrabassoon proves to be a concert and chamber music instrument that can also fulfill soloistic tasks as a matter of course. Hans Agreda was born in Venezuela in 1981. At the age of 14 he took up his musical studies at the Universidad de Los Andes in Merida, Venezuela. A few years later he moved to Germany to study at the Robert Schumann Musikhochschule in Dusseldorf in the class of Gustavo Nunez. During his studies he also took private lessons with Klaus Thunemann. He graduated from university with the best possible grade. At the moment he is a Postgraduate Student at the same university, doing his Konzertexamen.
