Lucie is an exclusive Decca Classics artist. Her debut CD featuring concertos and other works by Vivaldi received the 2017 Edison Klassiek Award. Her second album Baroque Journey, recorded with the Academy of Ancient Music and Thomas Dunford, featuring works by Sammartini, Bach, Marin Marais and Händel among others reached the No. 1 in the UK Classical Charts and was awarded the prestigious OPUS KLASSIK prize in Germany in 2019. For Deutsche Grammophon, Lucie has mastered the premiere recording of Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Variations on an Octatonic Scale’ together with cellist Kian Soltani.

Born into a family of professional musicians, Lucie began to study the recorder at the age of five. Only four years later, her televised performance of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 at a popular concert on the Prinsengracht canal caused a national sensation. At the age of eleven, after winning many competitions, she moved to the Sweelinck Academie at the Amsterdam Conservatory, where she studied the recorder with Walter van Hauwe. Also a talented pianist, she first studied with Marjes Benoist and is now in Jan Wijn’s class at the Amsterdam Conservatorium. She was a member of the National Children’s Choir for seven years, performing with conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Mariss Jansons and Jaap van Zweden. In 2014, she was chosen to represent The Netherlands in the Eurovision Young Musician contest and in 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Concertgebouw Young Talent Award, in the presence of Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

Lucie plays on recorders made by Seiji Hirao, Frederick Morgan, Stephan Blezinger and Jacqueline Sorel, made possible by the generous support of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
