Corrie van Binsbergen
Dutch guitarist and composer
Corrie van Binsbergen (CVB) is a Dutch guitarist and composer.
CVB’s very broad musical background can be heard in her music. She has developed her own characteristic style both in playing and composing. It’s a synthesis of jazz, rock, contemporary composed and improvised music.
In 1996 she founded the Stichting Brokken (Brokken Foundation) realizing ‘border crossing’ collaborations and productions where she brings together different musical styles or art forms for a far broader public than only jazz reaches.
In 1999 Corrie van Binsbergen received the VPRO/Boy Edgar Prize (the most prestigious award in Dutch jazz- and improvised music) for her creativity, craftsmanship and versatility. This prize is considered an oeuvre-prize.
Corrie van Binsbergen has received numerous commissions for compositions from organizations that include Dutch radio and TV, Dutch Filmmuseum, Holland Festival, Nederlands Blazers Ensemble, Mondriaan String Quartet, Zapp String Quartet, Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet, Radio Symphony Orchestra, Asko|Schönberg Ensemble & Barbara Hannigan and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
