Most of his professional life Pieter Nanne spent with what he describes as “making things possible for others”, teaching and organizing concerts. During the silence of the lock down, he concentrated on his own music. This resulted in a new cd: Gentle Guitar. Pieter Nanne plays an eight-string concert guitar with spruce top.

Pieter Nanne now feels what he is playing

The last four years were turbulent times for guitarist Pieter Nanne. During the lockdown he recorded a cd with his 8-string concert model.

Back in 2016 I got a phone call from Mister Nierstrasz who wanted to buy a concert guitar. I told him about my waiting list. Would I, in his case, be so kind to make an exception, he asked. Mister Nierstrasz happened to be 90 years old. Waiting List, Classical Guitar, His Travel, Spain Travel, Workshop, Shit Happens, Concert, Phone, Atelier

Frits Nierstrasz actually was a guitarist

Now for sale: a beautiful instrument with a spruce top and rosewood back and sides. In good shape, since Mr Nierstratz has always taken great care of it.

Frits Nierstrasz (1926-2021) was an international authority in the housing field. But according to his son, he was actually a guitarist. Frits Nierstrasz bought his first guitar at the age of 14. Many lessons and endless studying followed and eventually he even started performing. This he would do for the rest of his life. As a student he travelled to Spain to learn the language. There he spent most of his time in flamenco bars in Burgos, Barcelona, Madrid… His Travel, Spain Travel, Studying, Madrid, Barcelona, Workshop, Guitar, Rest, Language

Wanting to ad directing to his skills, offline editor Teun Rietveld asked if he could shoot some material of a guitar maker at work. In the old fashion way. Not on video, but analoge, on celluloid. Together with Gábor Deák on camera and Paul Damen as his camera assistent, he spent two pleasant days in my workshop. Link for the result.
