Pieter de Mast- saxophone, flutes and compositions

Pieter made two CDs (Tracing and Vista) with the ‘Pieter de Mast Quintet’. He played with this quintet at jazz venues in the Netherlands (including the North Sea Jazz Festival), Belgium and Germany. As a player of multiple wind instruments, he also contributed to numerous theatre productions, musicals and CDs. He played or recorded together with Kris Goessens, Jozef Dumoulin, Perron 19, Sandip Bhattacharya ,Olaf Tarenskeen, Boudewijn de Groot, Karel Boehlee, Amina Figarova, Walter Bertram, Bert van den Brink and many others. In 2004 he started the Windstreken ensemble. Besides being a performing musician and a teacher, Pieter de Mast is also an active composer. The Rotterdam Conservatory gave him the opportunity to study during half a year at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. For almost 25 years Pieter has been teaching at the Leiden Music School. Occasionally he taught flute-improvisation at the Codarts University for the Arts in Rotterdam and HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht.
