Contemporary Music

sun 1 oct 2017 17:00 

This monthly programme features composers who are active in the Netherlands at the time. The composer who is at the centre of the programme and also compiles it, adresses an inspiring fellow composer and passes the next broadcast to her or him. Hence the subtitle: Intime Briefe, after Leos Janacék’s string quartet.

In this fourth episode composer Samuel Vriezen addresses his colleague Jeromos Kamphuis.

Samuel Vriezen (1973) lives and works in Amsterdam. He composed a lot of chamber music which has been performed all over the world. He has a preference for organizing interaction and acts by performers in an unusual way, and explores the polyphonic possibilities that way of combined playing has to offer.

Besides being a composer Vriezen is also a poet and pianist. He has written many text-compositions or polyphonic poems, and his written work – consisting of poems, translations and essays – has been published by various literary magazines including the Dutch ‘Parmentier’, the Belgian ‘Yang’, and the French ‘Action Poétique’. As a pianist he is mostly known for his very virtuoso performance of Tom Johnson’s Chord Catalogue and Symmetries (released by Karnatic Lab Records in collaboration with Dante Boon).
