As marketing manager I am responsible for all marketing activities of the orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival. With the team we come up with all kinds of activities and campaigns to let Rotterdam, the Netherlands and the world know that our orchestra is the most adventurous one out there.
I play the trumpet myself in my spare time, and I regularly listen to classical music in the car or at home. I especially like the big symphonies by composers as Mahler and Shostakovich. My favourite piece is theVier Letze Lieder by Richard Strauss: it embodies the best music can bring in my eyes. I have a busy job, but luckily I still have enough time left for my girlfriend, two daughters and my trumpet.
I admire everyone who takes risks and follows their passion
