William Pijper & Henk Badings -Orchestral wks- phillips lp-A o2242l-1962

A glimpse at 2 relatively little known Mid 20th century Dutch composers
William Pijper, & Henk Badings
Phillips -lp o2242.1.l- 1962?

Side -A- W.Pijper
1-Piano Concerto-1927, H.Henkemanns -pno, The Concertgebouw O- Eduard van Beinum
Badings is now much better Known for his later Music , especially the Electronic music which was exclusive to his later period.

2- Six Symphonic Epigrams- Concertgebouw O. Van Beinum.

3-Six Adagios- 1940, the Hague Philharmonic O, Eduard Flipse


1- Concerto for 2 violins and Orchestra- 1954, Herman Krebbers and Theo Orlof- violins, The Hague Philharmonic O, Willem Van Oterloo.

Pijpers Language appears the more conservative , and his music is largely tonal.
the liners refer to "a creeping bi-tonality" in his music by 1920....

lovely music , and there's not a whole lot out there by either composer, i cant imagine this ever being reissued, the phillips Modern Music series from the late 50's through to the mid 60's , was a great showcase for composers who these days seem out of favour and outmoded.
there was another Badings disc in the series, and a few contemporaneous ones by dallopicolla , Krenek , and Janarch , which i wouldn't mind hearing...
Do any visitors have any , at all?

Hi Brian - it's possible we dont have these files any more. My esteemed confrere can confirm or deny this. He will however not be returning to the sort of civilisation that has an internet connection for some few weeks. But if you can wait...
