Bolette Roed – English

Bolette Roed is not merely a great virtuoso on her different recorders, she is also an unusually versatile and adventurous musician with a very broad repertoire.

Bolette performs in highly different ensembles of various sizes and a varied expression.

She made her highly acclaimed debut from the soloists’ class at The Royal Danish Music Academy in Copenhagen in 2004. Since then her career as a soloist and chamber player has taken her to venues and festivals around Europa and in the US.
