Music by Dutch composers or performers.

Jakob van Domselaer (1890-1960)

Works by Jakob van Domselaer (1890-1960), who, owing to his methodical and extremely consistent style of composing, occupies a unique position among Dutch composers. His pupil Simeon ten Holt continued to apply Van Domselaer’s methodology in his well-known meditative Canto Ostinato compositions. After pianist Kees Wieringa rediscovered Van Domselaer’s music in 1985, it has gained a certain degree of fame. Tonight you will hear his revolutionary piano music.
