Japanese piano music in an art gallery, a children’s workshop on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, jazzy cadenzas in classical concerts, a lecture recital on queer composers… Isaak Duerinck (1994) is at ease with them all and is happy to veer off the classical path. He feels perfectly at home on stage, especially when it involves music theatre or 20th-century music.
In his growth as a musician and performer, Isaak has been accompanied by the pianist Eliane Rodrigues at the Royal Conservatoire in Antwerp, and in 2016 he spent several inspiring months at the Escola Superior de Música in Lisbon. Together with soprano Naomi Beeldens he has played various recitals, i.a. for Operadagen Rotterdam and Marche Music International Festival, co-productions with Muziektheater Transparant.
He frequently returns to his first love, the accordion, with which he performs a variety of other musical genres, from django to tango.
In June 2017 he graduated magna cum laude with the cabaret performance LES ÂMES PERDUES, coached by Wouter Van Looy, artistic head of Muziektheater Transparant.
