The Hague violinist Frederieke Saeijs was taught by grandmasters such as Mauricio Fuks en Herman Krebbers and graduated summa cum laude from both the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington (USA). She attracted international attention by winning the prestigious Premier Grand Prix at the Long-Thibaud violin competition in Paris (2005). Frederieke has performed as a soloist with renowned orchestras and inspiring conductors such as Antony Hermus and Neëme Järvi.
She enjoys playing with musical friends and regularly performs with pianist Nino Gvetadze and cellist Maja Bogdanovic as the Gvetadze - Saeijs - Bogdanovic Trio. She is also an Associate Artist with the Spanish Quantum Ensemble. Composer Oene van Geel was commissioned by November Music to write the solo piece “Boog” for Frederieke, with dance movements choreographed by Heather Ware.
Another passion of Frederieke is talent coaching: she regularly gives masterclasses, and was a violin teacher at the Conservatory in The Hague, the Universidad Alfonso X El Sabio and the Centro Superior de Música Katarina Gurska in Madrid.
