Toon Fret is a flexible musician par excellence. He participates in the most diverse ensembles. He earned fame in the first place as a flutist and programmer of the ensemble Oxalys and also as a flutist of ‘Het Collectief’. Besides he can be heard as traverse player in various ensembles. In the contemporary repertoire Toon Fret is omnivorous with a predilection for works that do justice to the magical character of the flute. Small wonder that works by A. Jolivet, T. Takemitsu, T. Hosokawa, S. Sciarino and K.Y. Chong often feature on the programme. Concerts with Toon Fret are rarely exclusively contemporary: his programmes are organised along lines of context, dialogue and confrontation.
