It was with great sadness that we heard that Frank Crijns, the idiosyncratic Tilburg guitarist and composer, passed away on Monday May 27. Frank played in a number of his own ensembles such as Blast and Betonfraktion, but above all he was a special composer who moved across the entire spectrum of contemporary music.

The Concertzender has recorded a lot of his music in the past and will broadcast a selection of these recordings in an extra broadcast of Concertzender Live on Monday June 3 at 20:00 CET.

A series of four Contemporary Music Nights will start on July 17 in which all the known work by Frank and his ensembles will be broadcast.

The Concertzender wishes Frank’s family and friends strength in this sad time.
