Roeland Hendrikx is one of the leading Belgian clarinet players of the present day. He was principal clarinet with the National Orchestra of Belgium for many years, but in 2017, he embarked on a solo career. He nevertheless remains a zealous advocate of chamber music, which he plays with his own Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble.
In October 2018, EPR Classic released his registration of Mozart and Finzi's clarinet concertos and Bruch's double concerto, which he recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. According to the authoritative French magazine Diapason (5 pitchforks), it “has it all: accuracy, lyricism, elegance”. And the BBC Music Magazine (****) lauded the “restrained approach to Mozart’s concerto (…) which works surprisingly well”, and the fact that Roeland “captures the contrastive moods [of the Finzi concerto] with clarity, and particularly in the Adagio, beauty”.
The belgian newspaper De Standaard praised this recording as "outstanding" and "a barrel full of listening pleasure" (October 2018).
