Eyal Streett landed in Europe over twenty years ago to discover the exciting world of early music after studying modern bassoon with Richard Paley and Mordechai Rechtman. He was fortunate to study historical bassoons with Donna Agrell (Den Haag) and Alberto Grazzi (Milan).
He started touring while still a student and has performed and recorded with many leading figures and ensembles such as the Freiburger Barockorchester (of which he is a member), Les Talens Lyriques, the Balthasar Neumann Ensemble, René Jacobs, Frans Brüggen, Sigiswald Kuijken, and Trevor Pinnock among others.
Eyal believes that by playing the instruments that correspond to the music being interpreted one can actually search and find a meaning closer to that which was in the heads of the composer and audiences at the time it was originally created. This attitude also guides him when approaching chamber music whether it be a 17th-century piece for dulcian or an improvisation with electronics.
Eyal is a member of different chamber music groups including Rubato Appassionato (baroque), Mille e Tre (classical), Ensemble 1918 (late romantic and early 20th-century music) and Natural Breeds (improv with or without electronics).
Originally from Jerusalem, Eyal currently lives in Madrid.
