Herman Krebbers

~ Person


Herman Krebbers (born 18 June 1923) is a Dutch violinist. Born in Hengelo, Overijssel, Krebbers studied in Amsterdam with Oskar Back. In 1943 the 19-year-old violinist debuted with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and eventually became the Orchestra's Concertmaster in 1962. In parallel he led a career as a soloist and a chamber musician. An accident in 1979 forced him to limit his soloist activities.

Krebbers has gained worldwide renown for his masterclasses at the Amsterdam Conservatory, where he has trained some of the most important contemporary violinists, including Frank Peter Zimmermann, Peter Tanfield, Jeanne Lamon, Vera Beths, Rudolf Koelman, Szymon Krzeszowiec, Jeroen de Groot and Emmy Verhey. He has also served as chairman of the jury in the 1996 Leopold Mozart Violin Competition.
