Morning Concert:
The Music of Willem Pijper

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 128 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Han Reiziger of the Dutch radio station, VPRO, guest host’s on KPFA’s Morning Concert, for a program dedicated to the music of one of the Netherland’s internationally best known 20th century composers, Willem Pijper. Although he briefly studied composition with Johan Wagenaar, Pijper was largely self-taught as a composer. Despite suffering from poor heath for much of his life, he managed to create a large body of work that is still widely performed today. In addition to his composing Pijper also worked as a music critic for the “Utrechtsch Dagblad” and helped establish a periodical called “De Muziek”, for which he also wrote a series of essays. This program, which focuses on Pijper’s chamber works, (although one his symphonies is also heard), is an excellent introduction to this Dutch composer. All the more so because of Reiziger’s soft spoken, but highly informative, commentary.
