Limburger Cheese #1.
Not everyone likes it but it is a household word. That is also true for the contemporary music from Limburg. Limburg has a very rich musical tradition. Famous are of course the brass bands that are usually of exceptionally high quality. However, there is also a very rich circuit of ‘serious music’. In this broadcast you will hear works by three contemporary Limburger composers: Weirauch, Stolwijk and Kockelmans.
