Well, I did it again.  I'll stop posting Dutch music from now and remove the ones mentioned.

Elroel

No, please don't stop! It's much appreciated, and luckily, if there are certain releases of CDs that prevent us from posting music, there are legal alternatives like Concert Zender. See here:

http://www.concertzender.nl/programmagids.php?date=2008-02-05&month=-59&detail=27540
http://www.concertzender.nl/programmagids.php?date=2008-03-03&month=-58&detail=27918

Many other interesting pieces can be found in these same programs.

The earlier neglect of the Matthijs Vermeulen Cycle of symphonies on Donemus was almost criminal and probably would never have been redone by Chandos if Concertzender had not made them available for listening. Based on that, I got the original now defunct Donemus CDs which are priceless, but it took considerable effort and was an import. I have not compared them to the Chandos cycle because I have absolutely no need to do that.

I bought the symphonies of Matthijs Vermeulen when they came from Donemus as lp's. His chamber music  is also VERY Angry much in neglect!  I believe these are exact the same recordings they later used on there cd's. They came as double-lp album. Also his Chamber Music was available.
Eventually I digitised them and wrote them on cd. This way they now and then are played in my car stereo
The music of Vermeulen deserves a far better place in our concerts. Even in the Netherlands, his works are hardly ever heard in the music hall.

Nothing new of course, this neglect goes for many other composers. That's the reason we are on this forum, are we not?

Elroel :
Re  Vermeulen,
while we have the same mindset regarding the quality of his music, except for symphony 1, much of it is quite dour and
for that reason, may not be everyone's cup of tea. That's my guess as to why it does not often make the concert programs.
It is not an easy ride!!

Marijn Simons - Symphony Nš 2 (2006-7)

I uploaded the Second Symphony of the Dutch composer Marijn Simons.

For the non-Dutch speakers amongst you I translated the intro:

Marijn Simons wrote his 2nd symphony commissioned by the Theater Heerlen (Heerlen is a city in thr south-east of the country), on the occasion of the re opening after the restyling of this theatres Large Concert Hall in 2008.

It is  co commissioned from this theatre and of the Limburgs Symfonie Orkest for their 125th Anniversary. The symphony is dedicated to the conductor (and his former teacher) Ed Spanjaard.

Although Simons revised the work later, you'll hear here a live performance from the original version. This performance was given on September 29, 2008 in the Music Hall of the Theatre 'De Vrijthof' in Maastricht.

It was later broadcast on Concertzender (from the same tape).

The  Limburgs Symfonie Orkest plays the symphony, under the baton of Ed Spanjaard.

The symphony is in 4 parts, written for a large orchestra, with an extended percussion section (8 players). Next to the standard percussion instruments, there was also a use of exotic instruments like a Thai Gong, Latin-American and African drums.

The duration of the work is over 50 minutes.

Simons is indebted to the great romantic symphonies, especially to Mahler.

Willem Jeths: Blokfluitconcerto.

The recorder ("blokfluit" in dutch) is the number one instrument for musical education in the Netherlands. There are not many modern dutch concertos for the instrument.
The difficulty seems to be: to keep the recorder in balance with an orchestra.
Willem Jeths created a beautiful concerto, by using as little orchestral power as possible.

The concerto had its world premiere on dec 12, 2014, and a recording of this has now been posted in the Dutch music area.

The concerto was written for the solosist who plays it here: Erik Bosgraaf

You hear the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, conduced by their chief conductor Marcus Stenz.

Hello all,

One of the members informed me that there was something wrong with my post of De Leeuw's 1st Violin Cto.

The file I posted was by far too large for the composition itself. The VC starts at around 14 min. The first part, befroe the talking is a work by Tristan Keuris, who was a pupil of de Leeuw, who himself had a.o. Olivier Messiaen as one of his teachers.

I've modified the link. Now it is the Violin Cto No.1 only.

For space reasons I've uploaded the file to Dropbox. To download click on the file and go to the upper right corner where you see three dots ... click on it  and click on download.
