‘[Jeroen Berwaerts] combines lyrical warmth with an intensity that is often breathtaking.’
– Guardian

Praised for his outstanding technical capabilities, sensitive musicianship and resplendent tone, Belgian virtuoso Jeroen Berwaerts is a bright star in the trumpet firmament. He studied with Reinhold Friedrich in Karlsruhe, completed jazz vocal studies at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, and is now Professor of Trumpet at the Hochschule für Musik in Hannover and Professor in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

At home performing music from almost any epoch from Baroque to Jazz, Jeroen’s extraordinary commitment to contemporary music is evident in the numerous world premieres he has given including Toshio Hosokawa’s second trumpet concerto Im Nebel and Francesco Filidei’s Carnevale. In 2019 Jeroen shared the stage with Håkan Hardenberger to premiere Tobias Broström’s double concerto for two trumpets, co-commissioned by the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, BBC Radio 3 (BBC Proms) and the Swedish Radio Orchestra.

For this special UKARIA debut, Jeroen is joined by an artist who needs little introduction: Russian pianist Konstantin Shamray. Staples of the solo-trumpet repertoire (including the Hindemith Sonata which Jeroen recorded with Alexander Melnikov for Harmonia Mundi in 2015) feature prominently in a diverse program flecked with the golden hues of jazz.
