Description: The early piano music of this Dutch composer suggests the art of the miniaturist painter. These ‘portraits’ of birds, flowers, landmarks and other natural phenomena have the static and studied quality of Japanese prints and owe much to French Impressionism: they sit somewhere between Debussy and Satie, and unfold with gentle, unhurried dignity. Pianist Brussee offers a final bonne bouche with his own gentle tribute to Van den Sigtenhorst Meyer. Albert Brussee (piano).
