Dutch flautist Jacques Zoon enjoys a flourishing international career as a soloist, conductor and teacher. He was awarded the "Prix spécial du jury" at the Rampal competition (1987) and Scheveningen International Music Competition (1988). In 1997, he took the challenge of exchanging his top position as the Principal Flute with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for the same position with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and at the same time frequently toured with Abbado, Haitink and Harnoncourt. His recording of contemporary repertoire for flute with pianist Bernd Brackman was awarded the prestigious Edison Prize. In 1998, he was named “Musician of the Year” by Boston Globe.
