Bert van den Brink

Bert van den BrinkMarcel van den Broek

From his childhood Bert van den Brink (1958) has already been improvising on piano and organ. In this field of music Bert is completely self taught. He got his first piano lesson when he was five years old. In 1976 he started his professional classical education at the conservatory of Utrecht, with Herman Uhlhorn, and graduated cum laude in 1982 with the immediate invitation to take the chair of jazz piano teacher. He gave several classical recitals, but gradually the balance changed more to jazz.
He performed with musicians like Toots Thielemans, Chet Baker, Nat Adderly, Benny Golson, Lee Konitz, Jesse van Ruller, Clare Fischer, Enrico Pieranunzi, John Engels, Hein van de Geyn, and many others. In 1990 and 1991 he was the pianist in the quartet of Dee Dee Bridgewater. For some years he was musical director in the band of Denise Jannah. Of his several solo albums, "Jazz at the Pine Hill" (PHCHR 75084) got an Edison Nomination. The first album of the Bert van den Brink Trio (with Hein van de Geyn,bass and Hans van Oosterhout, drums) "Between Us" (Challenge Records SACHR 75230) was released in 2004. With vocalist Thomas Oliemans Bert recorded Franz Schubert’s “Winterreise” (FineLineClassical FL 72409). As arranger/producer his works are played by the Metropole orchestra, the Dutch Wood winds Ensemble, Denise Jannah and others.
In April 2007 Bert received the VPRO-Boy Edgar Award.
