The Dutch violin world is in mourning for Coosje Wijzenbeek, founder of Fancy Fiddlers and first teacher of many renowned talents, including the virtuoso soloists Janine Jansen and Noa Wildschut. It is reckoned that one in four professional violinists in the Netherlands were once her pupils.

Coosje died suddenly in Hilversum. She was 72.

    Ugly new layout, ads as far as the eye can see, and even more slipshod writing — who wouldn’t want to take out a subscription!
