Loss of instrument severe blow for Bart Schneeman and NBE
Invaluable Oboe Stolen Out of Car
Amsterdam, Sun, 26. Nov 2006On Sunday 12 November the invaluable oboe of Bart Schneemann was stolen out of his car while he was waiting before the traffic lights in Amsterdam.

Sunday last, 12 November 2006, around 16.15 h a bag containing the oboe of Bart Schneemann, artistic leader of the NBE, was stolen in Amsterdam out of his car by two boys on a moped or scooter, while Bart was waiting before the traffic lights.
Thie instrument is a copy of an oboe made by Heinrich Grenser at the end of the 18th century and was specially built for Bart Schneemann by Toshi Hasegawa. It is made of a light-coloured sort of wood and was enveloped in a wollen cloth in a black holdall.
It was just the period in which the NBE performed a new version of 'Così fan tutte' using period instruments, so the oboe was of the highest importance for the production. Also with a view to the future the instrument is invaluable for both Bart and the Ensemble.
Anyone who has information on the subject is urgently requested to contact the NBE, phone 020-6237806, fax 020-6234948, (Ernest Loot).
