www.woutervercruysse.com

Wouter Vercruysse (°1981, Courtray, Belgium) studied with Judith Ermert at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, where he graduated magna cum laude in 2006 with a Masters in Music Performance. Prior to his studies with Ms. Ermert, he received private training from Jan Van Kelst at the Courtray City Conservatory, where he completed his studies with highest honours. Furthermore, he has studied with Yo-Yo Ma, Alexander Rudin, Lluis Claret, and Viviane Spanoghe; and has been coached in chamber music by Filip Rathé (Spectra Ensemble), Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), and Claus-Christian Schuster (Altenberg Trio of Vienna). Since 1997, Armand Coeck has been Vercruysse’s personal mentor, under whose tutelage he has been able to expand his skills as a guitarist, improviser, composer, and chamber musician.

To date, Vercruysse has been the recipient of several performance awards, including a 1st prize in the Province-wide Valkaart Competition of 1998, the Rotary Prize of 2000 in Courtray, and the 1st prize in Dexia Bank’s National Axion Classics Competition for Music and Dramatic Arts in Brussels in the year 2000. As a chamber musician, he has given many concerts throughout Flanders and has performed in highly prestigious concerts halls such as the Cité de La Musique in Paris, the Seiji Ozawa Hall (Tanglewood, U.S.A.), and Carnegie Hall in New York City. While under the mentorship of Yo-Yo Ma, Wouter debuted in Zankels Carnegie Hall together with the Silk Road Ensemble.

Vercruysse appeared on Belgian television (VRT, EXQI, WTV) and on the radio (KLARA, NCRV, Classical Guitar Alive).

    Dear friends, listeners & fans, Since fees paid by Last.fm to artists are ridiculously low (in my case an average of 0,37 EUR for every 1000 streams), the promotional return is not significant, and above all, making the album available on last.fm had a cannibalizing effect on paid downloads on iTunes and other download platforms, I have decided to remove my music on Last.Fm. Hope you enjoyed listening! All the best, Wouter
