From REMGEWOGEN, a video series by guitarist Martin van Hees, set out to promote Dutch contemporary classical guitar music. In this video, Martin performs Aart...
For a long time, I have cherished the idea of making of an album dedicated to Dutch compositions written for the classical guitar.
During my studies at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague between 2008 and 2014, I developed a strong curiosity about the relationship between creating and performing musicians, in current times and in the past. To expand my knowledge on this topic, I worked with living composers whose collaboration I dearly treasure.
The realisation of Remgewogen is a project that I have been looking forward to immensely. The process of actively working with composers has contributed to my musicianship, and further inspired me to compose for the classical guitar.
