HANK HEIJINK

 

Lutenist Hank Heijink (pronounced Hey-ink) has played all over the world with leading ensembles such as the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, European Union Baroque Orchestra, Orchestre d’Auvergne, TENET, Mark Morris Dance Group and the Wooster Group, among others. He is in high demand as an accompanist on theorbo, lute and guitar, and his playing has been described as “eloquent” (Wall Street Journal) and “deft and sensitive” (New York Times). He can be heard on TENET's recent CD “A Feast for the Senses” and on Green Mountain Project’s live recording of Claudio Monteverdi’sVespers of 1610. Mr. Heijink holds a performance degree from The Hague’s Royal Conservatory (the Netherlands), as well as a degree in computer science, and a PhD in social sciences. When not playing lute, he writes software for the iPhone.
