Raymond Honing (1971) studied flute and chamber music with Harrie Starreveld and traverso with Marten Root, both at the Amsterdam Conservatory. He took masterclasses with the French flutist Patrick Gallois, as well. His repertoire extends from 18th century and early romantic music on original instruments to contemporary and world music on modern flute. He won prizes as a member of different ensembles at the Wettbewerb für Junge Kultur in Düsseldorf and at the Internationaal van Wassenaer Concours 2000. Raymond performs regularly as a soloist as well as a chamber musician. He has played the world premieres of flute concertos by Robin de Raaff (NL) and Uzong Choe (Korea) and has been the soloist in concertos by Bach and Vivaldi. He has made cds of music by De Raaff, Ruynemann and Feldman and plays in the Nieuw Ensemble, the Asko Ensemble, the Ives Ensemble, the Nederlandse Bachvereniging and the Frankfurter Barock Orchester, among others. He has performed in theater productions with the likes of the Argentine tango pianist, Pablo Ziegler and actress Loes Luca. Raymond is the artistic director of the baroque ensemble La Barca Leyden.
