Holland in Art and Science:
Carillon Music, Bert Schierbeek, & Han Reiziger

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min
Event Type: Interview and Music  

Recorded in 1974 by the Radio Nederland Transcription Service, a program about music and culture in the Netherlands. The program begins with a performance by, and interview with, Larry Weinstein, an American student at the Netherlands Carillon School in Amersfoort. Then, after a brief review of a book about how the theories of two 19th century American fringe scientists about the Earth being hollow and habitable on the inside influenced some of the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, the program continues with an interview with Bert Schierbeek. Poet and publisher, Schierbeek, discusses the inter-workings of his cooperative publishing house De Bezige Bij or The Busy Bee. The program concludes with an interview with Dutch radio producer, Han Reiziger, who was just preparing to work for four months at KPFA in Berkeley as part of an exchange program. Reiziger mentions how he was planning to introduce the work of Dutch composers to American audiences, and talks about the perceived differences in music programing between the two countries. An informal mix of Dutch music, both old and new, is then heard as way of example. Some of the programs that Reiziger eventually produced at KPFA are also available on radiOM.org.
