Short description

"... a violinist of fascinatingly contrasted character..." (London Times)


Guido de Neve is a passionate violinist, who once was dubbed “the new torchbearer of the Belgian violin school”. Already at a very tender age he showed an exceptional musical talent, being admitted to the conservatory of Brussels at eleven. His encounter with the Hungarian violinist Sandor Végh in 1984 had a tremendous impact on his studies and autodidactic ambitions. He developed a very personal style of interpretation, much appreciated at home and abroad. He also enjoys worldwide fame for his research and for the editing of unpublished manuscripts. Guido de Neve performed with the Eugène Isaÿe Ensemble and the Spiegel String Quartet, but later also as a soloist and in duo. Lately he has been applying himself to the baroque violin. He forms a duo with harpsichordist Frank Agsteribbe, with whom he performs music by Vivaldi and J.S. Bach on a baroque instrument built by Hendrik Willems in 1692.
