Carolbrass artist Theo Hartman
Theo Hartman began playing cornet at the age of 9. He studied the trumpet succesfully at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands. Among his teachers were Theo Laanen (Residentie Orchestra) and John Taber (Residentie Orchestra, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine). From 1985 till 1990 Theo worked as assistant principal trumpeter with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra in Israel. With the Haifa Brass Quartet he performed also extensively in Israel. Back in The Netherlands Theo performed with the Radio Symphony Orchestra and many more Dutch orchestras. In 2006 he initiated his own brass ensemble Continuous Brass which is still performing. In 2015 he has been the initiator to start the unique, surprising and challenging Triple Berry Trio. In autumn 2017 Theo created a new unique duo with classical guitar and trumpet called Duo Beyond Limits. In spring 2018 Theo started also 'Duo Hartman - Van IJzerlooij' in which the duorepertoire for cello and trumpet will be explored and enlarged by collaboration with international composers. For smaller ensembles he runs his TNCB Productions and next to that Theo is an enthusiastic brassteacher.
