Notes and Editorial Reviews

- Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt is now in his eighties and does not compose anymore. His music however is still extremely popular. Especially his multiple piano works in spite of their (because of their interactivity between performers variable) length.

- Ten Holt magically transforms individual instruments into one large body of sound. An extremely appealing sound with unexpected dimensions of resonances and harmonics. One might call his music "minimal', but there is much more to it. It is dynamic and organically evolving and highly fascinating once the listener has become encapsulated by the music.

- This set of 11 CD's contains all the composer's works for 2 up to 4 pianos. Canto Ostinato is Ten Holt's
Read more most popular work. There are five other adventurous pieces granting a long-lasting experience.

- An entirely Dutch production recorded by four Ten Holt-specialists, Irene Russo, Fred Oldenburg, and the Sandra and Jeroen van Veen Piano Ensemble.
