Han Tol



The teacher

Han Tol is active as a soloist, ensemble player, musical director and teacher throughout Europe, the U.S. and the Far East. He holds a professorship at the “Hochschule für Künste” in Bremen, Germany, and at the “Schola Cantorum Basiliensis” in Basle, Switzerland. His teaching activities include further courses at renowned music institutions in Vienna, Salzburg, Geneva, St. Petersburg, Jerusalem, Baltimore, Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong, to name a few. 

Mr. Tol was a member of the outstanding “Flanders Recorder Quartet”. In his orchestral work with the “Balthasar Neumann Ensemble” of Freiburg, Germany, his interpretation of 17th century Italian music while clad in full clown apparel was probably the most memorable. Han Tol was their guest artistic director for the production of the highly praised CD, “Perpetuum Mobile”, with recently discovered repertory by Telemann. 

The German music magazine “Tibia” published two articles by Han Tol, the result of his extensive research on the life and works of the mysterious sixteenth-century Venetian musician, printer and painter, Sylvestro Ganassi.

The artist can be heard on 40 CD recordings for such labels as Teldec, Harmonia Mundi, EMI, and CPO.
