Emile Visser

Cello

Emile Visser (1973) studied at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague with Godfried Hoogeveen and Dmitri Ferschtman. During his classical studies he became a member of Zapp4, a string quartet that specialized in playing improvised music, jazz, pop, rock, and world music and that has built up a reputation as one of the most idiosyncratic and swinging string quartets in the Netherlands. Since 2002 Emile has been a permanent member of the Metropole orchestra, a versatile orchestra with rhythm section and big band. He is also a member of Nikitov, an ensemble that plays Yiddish music. For the Cello Biennale 2014, together with cellist Pepijn Meeuws, he created the children's performance Cello! Cello! Ma non Troppo. He was also a soloist with the Hello Cello Orchestra and performed in one of the Late Cello Nights together with singer Nora Fischer and cellist Annie Tangberg.
