Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Dutch organist Tjeerd van der Ploeg studied at the Amsterdam Conservatory. He is organist of St. Christoforuskerk at Schagen and a frequent recitalist and improviser. He performs on an English built organ that was purchased by a church in Holland after the British church closed.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Van Der Ploeg plays with virtuosity and conviction and handles the color and dynamic possibilities of this organ with great skill. The Parry works combine the contrapuntal influence of Bach with the harmonic idiom of Brahms. One is reminded of Reger with more melody. Stanford wrote five substantial organ sonatas, and this one is based on his hymn-tune Engelberg. It has its moments.
