Works by Six Dutch Composers

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Han Reiziger of VPRO (Dutch Radio) hosted a number of KPFA broadcasts in 1974 as part of an exchange program between the two stations. In this edition he introduces the works of six Dutch composers, several of whom are relatively unknown in United States, even to this day. Included in the program is incidental music by Alphons Diepenbrock, two re-workings of the Dutch national anthem by Anthon van der Horst and Louis Andriessen, a symphony by Cornelis Dopper, a seldom heard avant-garde piece by Bernard van Beurden, and an aleatoric work for two wind quintets by Misha Mengelberg. One of these pieces is introduced by Reiziger as being “Choros II” by Anthon van der Horst, however this work is now best known as “Choros VI”.
