Today Katelijne Lanneau is considered one of the most versatile recorder players in Belgium. She likes to be challenged by music from the Middle Ages, polyphony from the Renaissance and new compositions from the 20th and 21st century. With her strong stage presence, expressive style, refined sound and speaking articulation she fascinates her audience time and again.

In the past Katelijne often performed on stage with renowned ensembles such as baroque orchestra B’Rock (René Jacobs and others), Collegium Vocale Gent (Philippe Herreweghe) and Canto Coronato (David Catalunya). Today she mainly focuses on the realization of her own projects. As a member of the recorder consort B-Five she performs throughout Europe and regularly makes radio and CD recordings. She is also active with the ensemble for medieval music ‚Il nostromo del Sogno‘. She has played first perfomances of compositions by Frederik Neyrinck, Angélica Castello, Carl Rütti, Anna Trauffer, Frank Nuyts and others.

With her passion for early and new music, Katelijne inspires musicians of all ages and levels. She is a guest lecturer at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. As a recorder teacher at the Jetse Academy, she has a lively recorder class and coordinates the early music department Early Music & beyond.
