Product Notes

Ten Holt: Canto Ostinato XL, Composer Simeon ten Holt, Artist Jeroen van Veen piano, Sandra van Veen piano, Irene Russo piano, Fred Oldenburg piano, Aart Bergwerff organ, Esther Doornink & Peter Elbertse marimba, Simeon ten Holt's unmistakable minimalist style is the driving force behind Canto Ostinato, one of the composer's most famous works. Canto Ostinato is the best-loved Dutch piano composition of the 20th century, with it's mesmerizing melodies never failing to soothe the mind. The instruments and number of performers for the piece are unspecified; written 'for keyboard instruments', the work has been recorded many times with piano, but this unique set brings together 12 arrangements of the work - for piano, as well as for organ, marimba and synthesizer. With a variety of recording venues ranging from throughout The Netherlands to Canada, this compilation is a must-have addition to any classical music collection. Jeroen van Veen is a leading light in modern piano performance, as well as a successful composer. Chairman of the Simeon ten Holt Foundation, he has won critical acclaim with ensembles such as The International Piano Quartet, DJ Piano and Jeroen van Veen & Friends. Recorded in 1999 - 2013. Anyone having experienced the power of Canto Ostinato by Simeon ten Holt will come under the spell of the hallucinatory effect of this iconic work, the most famous Dutch work for piano of the 20th century, one of the "classics" of minimal music. Jeroen van Veen and friends present the work in a variety of arrangements, ranging from piano solo through multiple pianos, organ, marimbas and synthesizers, each revealing other aspects of this deceptively simple work in which the harmonies shift imperceptibly in slowly changing waves. Liner notes on the composer by the artist, who worked in close collaboration till the composer's death last year.
