2.

Four parts with each the title of one of the Day Hours in French: le soir, la nuit, l’aurore, et l’après-midi. Symbols which can be experienced so explicitly in the Provence. Year in which it was composed: 1953.

This work was composed between 1939 and 1947, on texts by Karel van de Woestijne. “Wijding aan mijn vader“ and “Wat ben ik dan een vogel in de schemering”.

Concertino for violin with very small orchestra.
The very small orchestra consists of a flute, clarinet and alto saxophone. The work was composed in 1964. The first performance was under the direction of Jacques van Steen with Annemieke Corstens playing the violin.
The concertino consists of three parts, the last part is a ‘perpetual motion machine’.

The ‘Ode aan de Singer Naaimachine’ was composed as ‘declamatorium’ for a variety of voices with a ‘larger’ wind ensemble in 1982. The wind players also recite the texts (by Paul van Ostayen).

CD 2


1.
Motetto a 3 cori.
Composed in 1980 on texts of Joost van den Vondel (Kerstliedt), Frederik van Eeden (Lied van Schijn en Wezen) and one Anonymus (Grafschrift) for two mixed choirs and a women’s choir. It is an example of polychoral polyphony.



2.
Sonata no. 2 per pianoforte.
Composed in 1980. A compact tripartite sonata: fast - slow - fast. Technically difficult to play, but very pianistic. Some ‘simple’ melodic fragments give something to hold on to when listening to this music.



3.
Jaargetijde.
It was composed in 1944 during the German occupation of the Netherlands in the Second World War.
‘Een Jaar-Getijde for Johan van Oldenbarnevelt’ by Vondel, for mixed choir and orchestra. It sounds ‘Valerius-like’. ‘Dutch’, that’s why the ‘Valerius-like’ characterisation of the tone.



4.
Alla marcia.
A short symphonic composition for brass band, written in 1960. It was performed for the first time under the direction of - the legendary - Gerrit Schaar.

The second part on a text by Joost van den Vondel, “De Lof der Zeevaart”. The third part on a text by Bastiaans, “De Vecht”. Ergo Part 1 postulates, Parts 2 and 3 are practical examples.

Trits.

CD 4


1.
Adaptation of Sonata opus 49, nr. 2 by van Beethoven (1976).
The reason for this composition - and no. 2 on this cd - was the need for works for piano and four-handed piano to be performed with amateur symphony orchestras.
The first performance of both compositions took place during concerts of the Gouds Symfonie Orkest. The orchestra of which Jan van Dijk was conductor for many years.
Soloist in composition no 1 was IJsbrand van Dijk, in no 2. - the four-handed sonata by Mozart - the soloists were the pianists IJsbrand van Dijk and Jan van Dijk (son and father).



2.
Adaptation Sonata in D (4hnd) by Mozart (1980).
Both adaptations (1. and 2.) are illustrative for the numerous orchestrations which Jan van Dijk produced
for the Gouds Symfonie Orkest. A great number of them can be found in the FASO-library, some at Donemus and the others in the archive of the Stichting Jan van Dijk - Muziekwerken.
The pianists on the CD are IJsbrand and Jan van Dijk. The orchestra is conducted by Jan van Dijk.



3.
Concertino 3 for piano and orchestra (1966).
A concise concertino in a melodious dodecaphonic sound spectrum. The orchestral setting is small. The performance of this Concertino is under the direction of Jan Out, the pianist is Joop Voorn.



4.
Pianosonate 1 (1942)
This work was composed in the spirit of the times. In a musical idiom which the German occupier was reluctant to tolerate. After the liberation in 1945 it was first performed by George van Renesse in the USA.
On this cd Klaus Trapman is the pianist. He shows not only command over the melodic lines of the first sonate, but also the technique required for the introvert style of composing which is so characteristic for Jan van Dijk’s compositions at the end of the 20th century.



5.
Two Scherzi per Pianoforte (1988).
According to the composer a tribute to Chopin and Schubert. Pianist: Klaus Trapman.



6.
Sonatine 31 for piano (1983).

Sonatine 32 for Piano (1984).
Number 6 and 7 are sonatines with the length of compositions by Clementi. They are performed by the composer.

Sonatine 1 for Piano (1944).
A sound spectrum as in the first sonata: post-impressionistic. Pianist: Paul Prenen.



9.
Six epilogues for two piano parts (1972).
The performing pianist first makes a recording of part 1 and then plays part 2 as a counterpoint to part 1, thus producing a duet as a single performer.
On this recording this is done by the two pianists: the late François Mollinger and Jacob Boogaard.




CD 5


1.
Tetrade/Deux Sites particuliers for Wood Orchestra (1994).
“Tetrade”, a suite for wind orchestra in four parts, is followed by a composition for an unusual scoring: For violin and wind orchestra: “Deux Sites particuliers”. The composition was inspired by a stay in some very characteristic regions in the south-east of France.

Both works are performed by Harmonie Koning Wilhelmina from Wamel in The Netherlands under the direction of Jan Bosveld. The violin solo is played by Marijn Drolsbach.



2.
Sonata for Altorecorder and Harmonium (1993)
An unusual scoring. Played by Pieter van Veen (altorecorder) and Klaas Trapman (harmonium).



3.
On the Banks of the River Waal (1989).
A symphonic poem for wind orchestra. A sound symbol of the area mentioned in the title through the use of ‘Leit-Motive’. It is performed by the Nationaal Jeugdharmonieorkest under the direction of Jan Cober.



4.
Harmoniumbook 1 (numbers 2, 3, 5, 8) (1980).
“Silent meeting” is a phrase to characterize the musical atmosphere of the compositions in this Harmoniumboek 1 (Donemus). Klaas Trapman plays the harmonium.



5.

6.
Musique à trois (1967).
For recorder, flute and harpsichord. The most is made of the musical possibilities of the ensemble, resulting in great temporal structures.
The ‘old-fashioned’ scoring with the ‘modern’ notes result in attractive suspenseful music. It is performed by Het Brabants Barokensemble.



7.
Braconnage (1997).
Braconnage means poaching. If ‘Meister Johann’ had been added to the title it would have been evident that this is a cycle of waltzes à la Johann Strauss for clarinet, violin, viola and cello. Be it with an ironic intention.



8.
Sonatina for clarinet and piano (1991).
A neo-classical work in a newish harmonic packaging; feasible for the well-trained amateur.



9.
Pavane and Rondino for orchestra (1952).
The Pavane from 1952 will turn up later on in the serenade for wind players. The Rondino, a brief refrain, is the orchestration of a Rondo for four-handed piano from 1936.

It is performed by Orkest van het Brabants Conservatorium under the direction of Jacques Wijnen in 1968.
