Tony Nys


Violist Tony Nys (Belgium) started his musical training at the age of five, taking up violin lessons with Tomiko Shida. Later he continued his studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with ­Clemens Quatacker and Philippe Hirschhorn. Between 1994 and 1997 he was the first violin of the Fétis string quartet, attending masterclasses with the Alban Berg Quartet, the Borodin Quartet and the Amadeus Quartet. Ever since chamber music has been a natural environment for him. As a violist in the Danel Quartet from 1998 till 2005, he has played worldwide in ­numerous festivals, recordings and performances of newly composed pieces. Tony Nys has a special interest in contemporary music and has worked with composers as Helmut Lachenmann, Wolfgang Rihm and Pascal Dusapin
