Bio

René van Helsdingen was born in Jakarta, Indonesia on February 25, 1957. His nationality is Dutch. He studied classical piano with Mrs. Komter Loeber in Holland from 1962 – 1972. Then he studied Jazz music with Terry Trotter and Lazlo Cser in Los Angeles in 1979. His earliest influences: Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner and Bill Evans.

Over the years René has recorded and produced for many different labels, such as Virgin, Timeless, WEA, Zebra Acoustic, Pacific Music, his own label: Helsdingen Music and Munich Records, The Netherlands. “There are producers who recognize those who have chosen not to follow the crowd”.
His piano work is articulate, engaging and always encourages good side men. René writes most of his repertoire.

“A rewarding pianist who can play comfortably in the groove, or create more impressionistic patterns, or quiet, subtle musings. Perhaps the most notable quality of his solos is brevity. René allows himself a few extended workouts and avoids the trap of repeating himself or overstating his case”,The Age” Melbourne, 23 Dec. 1996

During the last 30 years he has organized many successful tours, projects and festivals sponsored by ngo’s , governmental institutions, companies to which he was responsible with regard to the control over the budgets made available.

René van Helsdingen has always been engaged intensively and continuously in composing, performing and recording of music on sound recording media.
He has a copyright arrangement with BUMA STEMRA Netherlands.

For his latest CD & video series Rene teamed up with French photographer Christophe Agou (using Agfa b&w expired film and rangefinder cameras) and Dutch camera man Martijn van Beenen (using 3 x Canon DSLR 7dDFA Records). Rene set himself the challenge to radically make a change and to create a visual presentation for a new musical concept entitled: mp3trio. No names – no bios - no profiles - just a band, a treeo where roots and minds intertwine. The footage in all of the 14 clips don’t show any faces and titles. The recordings were done at the Bennett Studios, Englewood, New Jersey

The title song:”l’Eau won the First prize in the jazz catagory of the 100% Music Songwriting Contest, an annual contest that awards songwriters from all over the World.
The album features Essiet Okon Essiet on bass and Marcello Pellitteri on drums and a special appearance by bassist Ted Trimble.
