Notes & Reviews:

  • The second volume of symphonic works by Hendrik Andriessen (1892-1981).
  • The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra is conducted by David Porcelijn
  • 'Andriessen's music pulses relentlessly on in free tonality, with sparing use of exaggerated intervals or contrasts...' - FonoForum, March 2013

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
Andriessen's clean-cut lines, resourceful, often polytonal harmonies and succinct mode of expression are undoubtedly movement is particularly engaging.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2014
The Viennese musicians of the Aron Quartet meet the challenge of these complex and highly strung pieces head-on worthy of admiration...recording and documentation are all first-rate.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
II is an orchestration of a piano piece built around a folk-like oboe tune. The harmony shows the result of Andriessen's 1920s contacts with Les Six. In the Ricercare (1949) a solemn opening theme leads to a whimsical segment lightly clad orchestrally. The Concertgebouw Orchestra commissioned the Mascherata Suite for its 75th anniversary in 1962. Andriessen called the movements "word riddles". The music is easily digestible. William of Nassau is a fantasia on the tune 'Wilhelmus', Holland's national anthem. The Netherlands Symphony offers clean performances aided by CPO's good sound.
