Enno Voorhorst

Netherlands (residence) °1962

Enno Voorhorst was born in 1962 in The Hague and grew up in a family of musicians. At an early age he started playing violin and combined this later with playing the guitar. He was taught by Hein Sanderink, Hubert Käppel and David Russell. In 1987 he won first prize at the 7th guitar competition at Hof, Germany. Some more prizes followed like the Dutch Guitar Prize in 1992 in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and, in the same year, first price at the Seto-Ohashi competition in Japan. Meanwhile he was invited all over the world and toured through South America, Europe and Asia.

Enno Voorhorst recorded several CD’s with music by Bach, Ponce and two volumes by Barrios. His first CD with works by Agustin Barrios Mangoré (Brilliant Classics 93086) received most favourable reviews and the recording was immediately ranked with those by John Williams and David Russell. Rico Stover, Barrios expert by excellence, wrote: “the CD Agustin Barrios Mangoré played by Enno Voorhorst is the best I have ever heard thus far”. The second CD with Bach transcriptions again was praised all over the world. Recently Brilliant Classics released his baroque album ‘Chaconnes’.

In 2005 Voorhorst formed the ‘Duo Macondo’ with the Russian-Mexican viola player Mikhail Zemtsov and together they gave numerous concerts. With oboe player Pauline Oostenrijk he recorded for Cobra records the well received CD 'Modinha'.

Enno Voorhorst teaches at The Hague Royal Conservatoire in the Netherlands. Here he is researching how to practise more efficiently using new insights of the functioning of our brain.
