Enno Senft, COE's Principal Double-Bass

Enno Senft (Principal)

“For me Claudio Abbado and the COE will be linked forever through Rossini’s music. Our opera performances and overture encores brought to life what he and the COE believed in: preserving the spirit, attitude, excellence and fun, all of which we were so passionate about at Youth Orchestra level, into professional life and making music relevant. His quiet and shy manner only highlighted his total musical control over the stage and Orchestra. The friendship and fun we shared on stage electrified audiences.”
