CZ Hollandia II: the 90s.

The Concertzender is 40 years old. In all those years, we have always consistently promoted Dutch contemporary music. In three special Theme broadcasts, the spotlight is on CZ Hollandia’s top performances. In other words, the finest highlights from the catalogue of Dutch contemporary music. In addition to some national favourites, we will also feature modern music from Dutch soil worth rediscovering. From beautiful classics to brilliant, forgotten gems. In this Theme broadcast we will highlight the 90s. A time in which composers fearlessly embraced sonic beauty and tonality, but celebrated individuality and experimentation at the same time. So, we couldn’t very well fail to give this extremely colourful decade some exposure. More than ever, composers firmly reconnected with audiences. You will hear music by Simeon ten Holt, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Ton Bruynèl, Paul Termos and Joep Franssens.
