Chronicle of Dutch Music

Music by Dutch composers or performers.

This time in Chronicle of Dutch Music we are featuring music by composers who were in high demand in the Felix Meritis concert hall in Amsterdam at the beginning of the nineteenth century, but who have now largely been forgotten. You will be listening to works by Ignaz Pleyel, François Devienne, Bernhard Molique, Andreas Romberg and Alfredo Piatti.
