Inge Frimout

Inge graduated from the Royal Conservatory in the Hague, under the guidance of Edward Witsenburg. She gives concerts with harp and voice and regularly appears on festivals with her electric harps. Inge directs the Blue Planet Harp Ensemble, a young harp orchestra of young students under 21 years.

Together with Mariël van den Bos, the first flutist of the Metropole Orchestra, she forms the duo Sphinx. They perform pieces by composers like Debussy, Fauré and Ibert, but also by Gershwin and Jobim. Inge performs with master violinist Ernö Olah, with whom she completed two tours in China with the Malando Tango orchestra. On several occasions Inge has had the honour to perform for the Dutch and Belgian Royal families.

Inge composes and publishes harp music. Her harp ensemble pieces ‘Flidias and the Magic Harp’ and ‘Blue Planet’ regularly performed by large groups of harpers from the United States to Australia. The premier of her ‘Whispering Caves’ composition was performed in the Caves of Valkenburg by the Blue Planet Harp Ensemble to the benefit of End Polio Now.

She composed the compulsory ‘Melrose suite for Harp’ for the national Rosa Spier Harp Competition in 2018.

Harpist and singer Jopie Jonkers and Inge collaborated to develop the harp method ‘Arpa Latina’. Together they perform in the Duo Harp & Voice with Spanish and Latin-American repertoire.

The fascinating space of electronic music in combination with harp is being explored with Max Frimout.

Inge is chairwoman of the ‘Harp Vereniging Nederland’, the harp association of the Netherlands.
