double bass

English double bass player Felix Lashmar joined the Concertgebouworkest in August 2018.

Previously a member of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, he has also appeared as guest principal with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and the Royal Northern Sinfonia, and has performed regularly with Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Camerata RCO.

A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Felix completed a joint study on cello and double bass. His teachers included Josephine Knight, Duncan Mctier, Graham Mitchell, and Dominic Seldis. During his student years in London, Felix gained experience through playing as principal bass with the European Union Youth Orchestra, and performing with the London Symphony Orchestra's in their string experience scheme. He then went on to work with institutions such as the English National Opera and the Philharmonia Orchestra.

Whilst on exchange at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for six months, he studied with Alex Henery.

After he crossed the North Sea to reach the Netherlands, Felix continued his musical education towards a master degree with Olivier Thiery and Rick Stotijn. In parallel, he continued to work with orchestras in Holland and abroad, and – during the 2016-17 season - , was a member of the Academy of the Concertgebouworkest. Upon graduation from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Felix became an assistant teacher to Olivier Thiery for two years.

Felix has a B.S. Fendt double bass on loan from the collection of Foundation Concertgebouworkest, a 4-string instrument with extension. This particular instrument was built ca. 1850 in London.
