Kristal Klaar Double bass

Double bass: twice de fun

The second concert in the series of the 8th edition of “Kristal Klaar” is dedicated to the double bass and will be conducted by Ruben Appermont.

Once more, a selection of young, talented musicians of Kunsthumaniora Brussel are ready to share their passion with you, while professional musicians will perform during the second part of the evening. You will be submerged by the complete sound spectrum of the double bass and its interaction within music ensembles.

Young Talent

Three young double bass players (two being student at Kunsthumaniora Brussel) will perform work for double bass as a solo instrument and piano.

Elias Bartholomeus and Daniele Giampaolo will present Passione Amorosa, a seldom performed composition for 2 double basses and piano by G.Bottesini. Eva Nijssen will play the prélude et Allegro by E.Bozza. All three will be supported by Stefan De Schepper on piano.


F4R BASS is a bass quartet consisting of four top musicians: Robby Hellyn, Lode Leire, Ruben Appermont et Kevin Conru. They are all tributary to the Godfather of the double bass: Maurice Aerts. F4R BASS wants to continue the bass quartet tradition of the master in its own personal way.

The bass quartet will guide you through music history, experienced from the lowest octaves perspective. Almost every music style will be covered: early baroque music, film music, tango, jazz, contemporary classical music, even some Michael Jackson.

The whole concert is presented in a slightly eccentric way, completed with appropriate anecdotes. You will be introduced to all aspects of the double bass as a full-fledged solo instrument.

There’s no doubt about it: F4R BASS is a quartet with huge depth !
