van Veen, J; van Veen,S ; Steijens
Composed by: Van Veen, Jeroen
Motivic repetition, nothing new within a composition, is for Dutch composer Jeroen van Veen (b. 1969) the most important element - the essence - of music. Rooted in tonality, and subject to the interaction and choices of the performers, it can prove immensely powerful. It was on this premise that van Veen launched his compositional career with two volumes of 24 Minimal Preludes; this exciting 5-CD release contains follow-up pieces to those works. The composer himself is the main performer here.
