This well-known Dutch lutanist studied under Toyohiko Satoh in 1988 at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague and later with Nigel North and Jose Miguel Moreno. After graduating, he worked as a continuo player in renowned orchestras such as Les Arts Florissants and other outstanding European ensembles devoted to music of the Baroque period. Fentross has become a much-sought-after lutanist who has also recorded CDs with Yo-Yo Ma, Jaap van Zweden, Maria Bayo, Lucy van Dael, Wilbert Hazelzet, Roel Dieltiens, Les Arts Florissants, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Capriccio Stravagante, Il Giardino Armonico, Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, the Harp Consort, the New London Consort, and Al Ayre Español. In 1991, he formed the ensemble La Sfera Armoniosa. Since 1997, he has taught at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague. Fentross made his successful debut as a director conducting the seventeenth century opera La Dafne by Marco da Gagliano in a production at De Nieuwe Opera Academie (the New Opera Academy). He has also conducted the Maria Vespers of 1610 by Monteverdi at the Festival for Ancient Music in Utrecht, and at other venues.
