Écoutez la chanson bien douce’ – Alphons Diepenbrock (1862 – 1921) – Part 3

‘Écoutez la chanson bien douce’
Alphons Diepenbrock (1862 – 1921)
Part 3

In this third part of the triptych about the songs by Alphons Diepenbrock, whose 100th birthday we are commemorating this year, we focus on songs on French texts (Baudelaire, Verlaine and André Gide) and songs on Dutch texts by Albert Verwey, Vondel and Perk. Diepenbrock was trained as a classical scholar, but his heart was with music from an early age. As a composer he concentrated almost exclusively on vocal music; he wrote many songs for piano and orchestra. With his orchestral songs, he developed a genre that was virtually unknown at the time. In three episodes of ‘Die Sanck een Liedt’, you will hear his story and his music.
