BIOGRAPHY

Roeland Hendrikx is one of the leading Belgian clarinet players of the present day. After training in Leuven and Antwerp (with Walter Boeykens), he perfected himself in masterclasses taught by Thea King and other clarinet legends. Hendrikx was principal clarinet with the National Orchestra of Belgium for many years, but in 2017, he embarked on a solo career. He nevertheless remains a zealous advocate of chamber music, which he plays with his own Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble.

In October 2018, EPR Classic released his registration of Mozart and Finzi's clarinet concertos and Bruch's double concerto, which he recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (conducted by Martyn Brabbins).

 De Standaard
"dat het beregoed klinkt"
"zijn Mozart is een vat vol luisterplezier"

Diapason
5 pitchforks 
"Tout y est : lyrisme, élégance justesse"

 BBC Music Magazine
score : *****

"the “restrained approach to Mozart’s concerto (…) which works surprisingly well”, 

(Roeland) “captures the contrastive moods [of the Finzi concerto] with clarity, and particularly in the Adagio, beauty”

British Music Society Newsletter
The Belgian musician Roeland Hendrikx is a superb clarinettist.  It is as simple as that… His tone is limpid and yet voluptuous, and his breath control amazing.

(about Finzi) … So, in basic terms, this issue becomes the go-to version of this concerto.

(about Mozart)… Again, it is difficult to imagine it being better done…

 Klassik Heute
Selten wird Schönklang erhebender zelebriert. Das jedenfalls tun der Klarinettist Roeland Hendrikx und das London Philharmonic Orchestra auf dieser Aufnahme – und zwar satt und in jeder Hinsicht

(about Bruch) ...Hier fügen sich Hendrikx‘ weicher, bruchloser und über alle Lagen perfekter Ton wunderbar mit dem auf allen Positionen exquisit besetzten und mit geradezu himmlischem Wohlklang und erhabener klanglicher Perfektion spielenden, von Martyn Brabbins geleiteten London Philharmonic bestens zusammen – in jeder Hinsicht.
