Own Compositions

Composing is one of Eveline Leen’s greatest passions and there is always a link between her compositions and her private experiences, her journeys and the world of film. Her collaboration with various artists, writers and other musicians are an important source of inspiration.

Her compositions are characterized by an evocative power and each composition adds something new in theme and vision. Her work does not only possess a deep expressive meaning, but at the same time evocates a narrative structure that immerses the audience in a new emotional universe.

Concerts

Compositions need concerts, they have to be shared with other people. To Eveline, the opinions and reactions of people regarding her work are an added value. For Eveline, it is always a delight to learn about the impact of her music on people.

Eveline performs on various occasions and on different locations. On request she also plays at parties, in arts centres and cultural centres, she organizes private concerts etc.

In 2011 Eveline decided to choose unusual locations for her performances, such as castles, churches and historical buildings. She also organizes living room concerts, where a unique convivial atmosphere is evoked each single time.

Concerts with students and colleagues

Every year, Eveline organizes a wonderful Christmas happening, together with her colleagues from the Hasselt Academy of Music. Each time the concert focuses on a new theme, such as ‘Christmas in cinema’, ‘Christmas with a sense of humour’ etc, and different angles such as recitation, theatre, dance, guitar, sax, orchestra, and of course, Eveline’s piano class. This Christmas happening always takes place on the last Wednesday before the Christmas holidays at 7pm at the Hasselt Academy of Music.

Teaching

Eveline Leen teaches at the Stedelijk Conservatorium voor muziek, woord en dans in Hasselt and the Stedelijke Academie voor Kunsten in Maaseik. In both schools she is part of shaping various educational and musical thematic projects and film projects. Apart from this she is also a private teacher. As a teacher she became renowned for mentoring talented pianists.

She coaches young people and offers them a thorough preparation for competitions such as the Cantabile Pianowedstrijd voor de Jeugd in Belgium and the Prinses Christina Concours in the Netherlands. Eveline prefers contemporary music and is constantly looking for new composers, including Belgian ones. She uses their music in her classes so that her students are always aware of what is going on outside the classical repertoire.
