With a father who is a classical contemporary composer, Babette was immersed from birth in a world of music, including the modern sounds of the 20th and 21st centuries. This unique heritage has given her a special gift: the ability to harmoniously combine various musical styles and composers in her performances.
Babette is praised by many for her beautiful touché on the keyboard, broad musicality and expressiveness. Her musical journey reflects a unique connection to a rich musical heritage.
Lied is an intimate way of making music where poems are set to music and then performed by a classical singer and a pianist.
Babette is passionate about the Liedgenre next to her love for solo-repertoire. She was introduced to it together with mezzo-soprano Herlinde Van de Straete in the Liedclass of Lucienne van Deyck, Jozef de Beenhouwer and later Aäron Wajnberg. Herlinde and Babette form a set Liedduo since 2018. Throughout the year Babette has also worked with multiple other singers on diverse repertoire.
