Erik Otte (b.1955)
Born in Leiden, Otte played the violin as a child but made his final choice for guitar at age 16. After graduating from the Royal Conservatory (The Hague) and the Conservatory of Rotterdam, he followed an international performance career before settling into composing for chamber music in recent years.
Suite Rio de la Plata, which consists of four dance movements, was written for Anne Ku and Robert Bekkers as a present.
