About

“Meeuwsen’s supple technique drew out the delicacy and beauty of everything he played, and the evanescence of sound in Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin was enormously moving.” – The Uk Times (appearance at St. Magnus Festival 2023)

 

Born in 2002, pianist Nikola Meeuwsen already has an impressive career. He made his solo debut at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam in January 2024, he will play with the Residentie Orkest in 2025, and with Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen in 2026.

He also received the Concertgebouw Young Talent Award in 2019, among other prizes. Currently Nikola is being supported by the Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund. Nikola performs internationally and is regularly invited to take part in various festivals.
