Ig Henneman

About artist / group: 

Ig Henneman (Netherlands) began her working life as a viola player in symphony orchestras before co-founding the rock-band FC Gerania, for which she also began composing. She is for the most part a self-taught composer, though she did receive some two years of coaching from Dutch composer Robert Heppener. Nowadays Henneman is counted as one of the ‘New Dutch Swing’ improvisationalists of the Amsterdam scene, as well as a prolific and sought after composer. In 1985 Ig Henneman began leading her own groups showcasing improvisation as well as her own formal compositions. As an improviser she currently focuses on the Henneman String Quartet, on dueting with Ab Baars (cl & ts) as well as the Queen Mab Trio.
