The recorder player and oboist Teun Wisse lives in Basel, Switzerland, where he follows a masters degree in musical performance of Early Music at the renowned Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with professor Conrad Steinmann. Before that he studied in Utrecht with professor Heiko ter Schegget. He received master classes from Marion Verbruggen, Dorothea Winter, Pedro Sousa Silva. Teun also studied oboe with Frank de Bruine and Musicology at Utrecht University.
Teun regularly gives concerts and was a price winner in competitions as Prinses Christina Concours and Nationaal Concours, where he was awarded the prize for best interpretation of a contemporary piece. In 2012 he received the second price in the finals of the International Recorder Competition Niedersachsen. In ensemble setting he plays with Renaissance recorder trio The Early Byrds and harpsichordist Teun Braken.
Teun plays the recorder because, for him, the basis of music is singing and no other instrument is so close to the human voice.


The Early Byrds

The Early Byrds, founded in 2010 at the Utrecht Conservatory, have been exploring instrumental as well as vocal pieces while specializing in 16th century repertoire. The members of this consort, Gerrieke van Dam, Tim Veldman and Teun Wisse, are being coached by Heiko ter Schegget and followed masterclasses with Conrad Steinmann, Pedro Sousa Silva and Marion Verbruggen.
