As an ever inquisitive label, Challenge has chosen a young violinist with an outstanding personality. Van der Ent does more than merely give a performance; he pursues a daring journey with the listener. Even the simple choice of a 1828 violin, gut strings and a certain bow give this account a thoroughly unique sound world. Bob van der Ent is one of the most prominent and versatile violinists in the Netherlands. He has been described by the press as "a highly gifted and virtuosic violinist with a beautifully spacious and rounded tone". Bob van der Ent regularly appears in the Netherlands and elsewhere as both soloist and chamber musician, in concerts, at festivals and on radio and television.
