Alfonso González Martínez

Pianist | Accompanist | Teacher

Alfonso is a pianist from Spain who came to the Netherlands to complete his education with a Master of Music in Utrecht. Currently based in Rotterdam, he takes part in the busy life of a musician with all kinds of projects from solo concerts to chamber music ensemblesvocal and ballet accompaniment and piano improvisation.

Music has always be a passions of mine. Its power of communication is undeniable. From a very young age I fell in love with this discipline and its possibilities and being able to share it with my community is one of the most rewarding experiences. 

When we talk about classical music we refer to pieces that were composed in the past. But our role as artists and performers is to bring these masterpieces alive in the present and ensure their continuation into the future for the generations to come.

SERVICES

Accompanying

I have more than 15 years of experience as a vocal and instrumental accompanist for exams, auditions and recordings. My experience also includes choir, ballet and opera accompaniment as well as basso continuo (harpsichord).

PerforminG

My education includes a Master of Music in Performance on Stages. International chamber music and solo piano recitals are an important part of my career.

Teaching

Being a piano teacher for the last 10 years I have experienced the complexity of the musical language from a pedagogical perspective. I find that music theory and analysis are great tools for the students that are willing to dive into the challenges of piano playing.

Projects

NamasDuo Piano

What compares to a live concert? Live performance is something unique. We offer more than a classical piano recital, we offer an experience. The sparkle of creating music on stage is what drives us. We want to make the connection between the music, the audience and us.

Alberi Duo

The Alberi Duo was founded in 2016. In Italian, Alberi Duo means ‘two trees’. These trees represent the environment where Alfonso Gonzalez (piano) and Karin Timmerman (singing) come from. Alfonso from Galicia (Spain) on the Atlantic Ocean and Karin from Vancouver (Canada) near the Pacific Ocean and at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Karin and Alfonso met in Utrecht in September 2016 and immediately had a musical “click”.
