The Dutch guitarist, Enno Voorhorst, grew up in a family of musicians. He conducted his studies with Hein Sanderink, Hubert Käppel and David Russell. In 1987 he was awarded first prize at the 7th Guitar Competition in Hof Germany, followed by a series of other prizes, such as the Dutch Guitarprize in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 1992, as well as the first prize at the Seto-Ohashi Competition in Japan in that same year.
Meanwhile Enno Voorhorst was invited to perform at concerts in El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Japan, Russia, Poland, Germany and elsewhere.With the ‘I Fiamminghi’string-orchestra under Rudolf Werthen he played the Dutch first night of Roland Dyens Concierto Métis.
Enno Voorhorst's first CD dedicated to Agustín Barrios Mangoré (Sony 1994) was received very favourably. Roberto Brocamonte, himself a pupil of Barrios wrote about this recording: “Enno’s tremolo is just perfect. In this rendering it seems as if ‘The Indian of Paraguay’ composed it specialy for these wonderful hands”. The Barrios specialist Rico Stover wrote about this recording: “This CD played by Enno Voorhorst is the best I have heard thus far.” Naxos released worldwide the CD: ‘J.S. Bach, guitar transcriptions’ in 2002. A new Barrios CD will be released soon, also in the Naxos series.
Enno Voorhorst holds the position of guitar teacher at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
