Liselotte Rokyta

The Dutch panflutist Liselotte Rokyta studied to play the panflute with the internationally renowned Romanian panflute-player Nicolae Pirvu at the conservatory in Hilversum and Amsterdam.

She took master classes with Gheorghe Zamfir and Simion Stanciu and regularly traveled to Romania to familiarize herself with the authentic Romanian style of playing. In 1997 she lived in Maramures (North Romania) for three months where she investigated the (until now rather unknown) vocal form called "Hora cu noduri" because of her Romanian philology studies.

Liselotte often works together with the Canadian organ player André Knevel and other well/known (Dutch) organ players, performing at concerts in the Netherlands and abroad. Next to that she forms a cimbalom/panflute duo with her husband Jan Rokyta. Together they offer a program that combines classical music with world music. She is also a panflute teacher attached to the Bourdon Higher vocational education of Music (a music academy), Artez Academy of Music in Zwolle and the "Scholen in de Kunst" in Amersfoort.
