Review By Christophe Huss,,

L’édition Casella de Naxos vient à peine de s’achever que les amateurs de cette “autre musique symphonique du milieu du XXe siècle” ont un autre compositeur à se mettre sous la dent: le Hollandais Hendrik Andriessen (1892–1981), père du fameux compositeur contemporain Louis Andriessen.


Review By David Hurwitz,,January 2013

The Ballet Suite…is the largest work on the disc, and its concluding waltz…shows very clearly just how captivating and elevated in taste Andriessen could be even in the simplest musical styles.

The Kuhnau Variations…reveal a consistently imaginative handling of the theme and keen ear for instrumental texture. The Symphonic Etude is a study in the true sense of the term: an exploration of what the composer can do with a new method, working within his already very personal compositional idiom. This first disc in cpo’s projected complete edition of Andriessen’s symphonic works thus presents a very well-rounded overview of the man’s orchestral output.
