IT, EN

My name is Isolde Troost, and I'm a concert pianist. I like to play classical music. My favorite composers are Grieg, Chopin and Mendelssohn. I also enjoy working with other artists, for example with singer Emma Brown, or with dance theatre Flow Performing Arts.

I prefer to give a living room concert. I especially like to tell something about the programme I'm playing in between playing. This allows the audience to better focus on a certain aspect of the music - a repeating theme for example - which makes the pieces much more accessible. In this way the story becomes alive in the music.

I also like playing background music. I like to play some softer music with simple lines, like Satie, Grieg or short pieces by Schubert or Schumann

The given price is based on a performance of 60 minutes and is an indication. Unknown request numbers cost at least € 50,- (depending on the difficulty of the piece) because of extra study time Bringing your own material (keyboard etc.) is at least € 70,-. In consultation it is also possible to add a singer and/or some dancers to the performance; the price changes depending on the wishes of the applicant

I can also play request numbers; for example a specific piece for a baptism or a wedding. Many of the usual pieces are already in my repertoire, but if you want something completely different - such as a solo piano version of "Morning has Broken" - I can of course always look at it!

I started playing the piano when I was four years old. When I was eleven I went to the Conservatory for the first time. I completed my Bachelor's degree in The Hague, and obtained my Master of Music in Oslo, Norway.

In other words, I am a classical musician who is at home in many markets, and it seems to me a lot of fun to cheer up your event with live music!

Execution was the most amazing

Isolde's performance was very good. We enjoyed it. Even days later it was still talked about in terms of "Great".

Everything was a plus!

The performance of Isolde during our wedding was great! She made a beautiful contribution to our wedding to make our day unforgettable. For this we are very grateful to her! Isolde herself is next to being a very talented pianist also very professional. During our wedding the planning went different than expected, this was no problem for Isolde and she adapted effortlessly. Also the communication for the wedding was very nice, Isolde was very reachable and very understanding for all the adjustments we made every time. In summary, we have nothing but praise for Isolde!

She's someone who plays with so much passion

On Saturday, Isolde gave a living room concert in honour of my wife's birthday. She is a craftswoman who, in this small setting, creates something unforgettable that we will remember for a long time with great pleasure.

A very nice homely concert with choice for the audience, and interaction in different languages

Isolde did a fantastic surprise performance at our house for my wife. Besides the beautiful music (a.o. Mendelsohn's Lieder Ohne Worder). Besides that she had a very homely, pleasant interaction with all those present; including the children. Thank you very much!

Matched well with the ceremony

We've booked Isolde for our wedding ceremony and haven't regretted it for a second! Isolde felt good about what we wanted and also actively thought about what would work and what would not. The final performance was very nice and was exactly what we had in mind.

Perfect. We enjoyed

We've booked Isolde to play during our wedding ceremony. We wanted to hear specific pieces at certain moments, and with Isolde's help and thinking this all went great. Isolde played beautifully. The communication beforehand also went great. Isolde thinks along with us about the possibilities, gives suggestions and answers questions usually within 24 hours (!). All in all a great experience and a must for anyone looking for a great pianist. Thanks again. Fabienne & Sander

Wonderful contribution to our wedding!

Isolde played a number of classic songs during our wedding ceremony. It was really a nice addition to the program. The communication with Isolde in the run-up and on the day itself went flawless. She was open to our suggestions, but also had good ideas about which songs would fit well and the timing. Many guests complimented us for the beautiful music, and we are very grateful to Isolde for this. Highly recommended!
