As a composer, Hendrik Andriessen favoured classical and even pre-classical forms, as the individual movements of some of his symphonies clearly show; but he was a staunch admirer of Debussy’s music and, late in life, took-up some twelve-tone writing without ever adhering strictly to it. This beautiful set is wholeheartedly recommended to all those who love symphonic music from the first half of the 20th century, have a liking for French music of the inter-war years and who admire, say, Vaughan Williams’ music. Not to be missed.
