about dorine

Dorine Diemer (b. 1982, Utrecht) started playing the piano at the age of 9. From age 16 she studied at the Conservatory of Amsterdam with Marjes Benoist and later with Norwegian pianist Håkon Austbø. After completing her Bachelor degree in 2006 with great success, she was awarded a scholarship to continue her study at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where her teachers included Martin Roscoe and Ronan O'Hora.

Dorine has participated in several festivals, such as the Oxford International Piano Festival and the Engadiner Klavierakademie in Switzerland. She worked with the American composer John Adams on his violin-piano piece 'Road Movies', and participated in masterclasses with Peter Feuchtwanger, John Bingham, Graham Johnson, and Menahem Pressler. From 1999 she has performed regularly as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist in multiple venues in and outside of The Netherlands.

Dorine has special affinity with harmonically complex music from the twentieth century, and she tries to promote these works in her concerts. She is currently working on a project for audiences unfamiliar with the music of Ravel and Messiaen, combining concert performances with an introduction to the concepts behind their works.

Verrassend talent [...]. [DD] ontpopte zich als een integer, muzikaal intelligent en technisch begaafd spelend pianiste.
