    Joep Franssens is a Dutch composer. He studied piano in Groningen, and composition in the Hague and Rotterdam with Louis Andriessen and Klaas de Vries respectively. He is representative of the post-serial generation of Dutch composers who use tonal means and an accessible idiom without neo-Romantic features, even if the pathos-laden, highly emotional nature of his music appears to contradict this endeavour. In his works, which consist of chamber music and choral and orchestral works, Franssens aims at a synthesis of monumentality and euphony and is initially guided by J.S. Bach and the Ligeti of Lontano and Atmosphères. Later a trend towards radical austerity becomes apparent under the influence of American minimalist music, East European mysticism (e.g. Pärt) and the symphonic pop music of the 1970s, culminating in the static diatonicism of the ensemble work Dwaallicht (1989) and the serene counterpoint of Sanctus for orchestra (1996, rev. 1999). The instrumentation increasingly shows a preference for warm, luxuriant colours.

    Bortniansky is best known today for his liturgical works and his prolific contributions to the genre of choral concertos.[4] He was one of the Golden Three of his era, along with Artemy Vedel and Maksym Berezovsky.

He is representative of the post-serial generation of Dutch composers who use tonal means and an accessible idiom without neo-Romantic features, even if the pathos-laden, highly emotional nature of his music appears to contradict this endeavour. In his works, which consist of chamber music and choral and orchestral works, Franssens aims at a synthesis of monumentality and euphony and is initially guided by J.S.

Later a trend towards radical austerity becomes apparent under the influence of American minimalist music, East European mysticism (e.g. Pärt) and the symphonic pop music of the 1970s, culminating in the static diatonicism of the ensemble work Dwaallicht (1989) and the serene counterpoint of Sanctus for orchestra (1996, rev. 1999).

    Live recording Concertgebouw Amsterdam 27-6-2006

    Joep Franssens (1955) studied composition at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. In 1982 he continued his studies at the Rotterdam Conservatory, where, in 1988, he concluded his study period with the Composition Prize.

    Although Franssens’ multifaced musical style does not make it easy to classify him, he is often regarded as the Dutch representative of the so called New Spirituality in the Netherlands. In his music Franssens aims to express the Universal; his sources of inspiration are to be found amongst writers and philosophers like Fernando Pessoa and Baruch de Spinoza. In a rich tonal language his music evokes strong emotions by the public, both unacquainted with contemporary classical music as well as specialised listeners. In 2004 the recording of his major choral work Harmony of the Spheres reached the seventh rank of the classical charts in The Netherlands.

    The music on my channel is meant to introduce a large audience to music by unknown classical composers and unknown classical music by famous composers in the music period of about 1870 till about 1970.

    -----
    for you dutchies out there:
    Voor de ZaterdagMatinee, in opdracht van de NPS, schreef Franssens Grace. Het Engelse woord grace heeft twee betekenissen. In de eerste plaats kan men het vertalen als gratie, waardige schoonheid, elegantie. In de tweede plaats duidt de titel ook op de onvoorwaardelijke genade van God voor de menselijke ziel (na de biecht: staat van genade). Grace is een orkestwerk van ruim een kwartier. Het is geschreven voor een grote bezetting: veel hout en koper, pauken en drie slagwerkers (voor grote trom, wind chimes, grote bekkens, tamtam en buisklokken), celesta, piano en strijkers. Een enigszins versterkte, tekstloze sopraanstem fungeert als orkestinstrument. Deze sopraan is binnen het ensemble v?de hoge houtblazers gesitueerd. De aanduiding warme, rijke expressie geldt als instructie voor het hele werk, dat kleurrijk over alle orkestgroepen en instrumenten is verdeeld. Het stuk verlangt alle dynamische mogelijkheden binnen een muziek, die kan zwelgen, maar ook intens verstillen bij een solo van de althobo, of in de slotmaten voor celesta, piano en strijkers. Yvette Bonner, sopraansolo. Radio Filharmonisch Orkest en Groot Omroepkoor o.l.v. Vasily Petrenko. Regie: Rob van den Berg.

    12:12

    Harmony of the Spheres, composed by Joep Franssens (*1955), performed by chamberchoir Doulce Memoire conducted by Felix van den Hombergh, performed during concert on June 10th 2012 in Overveen, The Netherlands



    Toelichting door dirigent Felix van den Hombergh: Dit werk is niet echt tweekorig geschreven, maar het werkt wel zo omdat er één groep is die steeds op de tweede achtste van een tel inzet of wisselt van toon, terwijl de andere groep dat één tel later op de derde triool-achtste doet. Soms doen vier stemmen dat op hetzelfde moment, maar meestal verglijdt de muziek in een oceaan van schijnbare ritmeloosheid. Het stuk moduleert de hele kwintencirkel rond (m.a.w. vanaf drie kruizen steeds een kruis erbij tot er overgegaan moet worden naar 6 mollen, dan afbouwend per mol, tot weer uitgekomen wordt bij die drie kruizen). Deze modulaties vinden soms snel na elkaar plaats, maar er zijn ook hele bladzijden in één toonsoort.

    Tekst uit: Ethica van Baruch de Spinoza
    vertaling: Nico van Suchtelen

    Hominibus apprime utile est, consuetudines jungere,
    seseque iis vinculis astringere, quibus aptius de se omnibus unum efficiant,
    & absolute ea agere quæ firmandis amicitiis inserviunt.
    Animi tamen non armis, sed Amore, & Generositate vincuntur.

    Het is voor de mensen van het hoogste belang met elkaar om te gaan,
    zich zodanig bij elkaar aan te sluiten, dat zij meer en meer tezamen één eenheid vormen
    en in het algemeen alles te doen wat strekt tot versterking van vriendschap.
    Toch worden harten niet door wapenen, maar door Liefde en Edelmoedigheid overwonnen.

    (From Spinoza's 'Ethica more Geometrico')
    Per Deum intelligo ens absolute infinitum, hoc est, substantiam constantem infinitis attributis, quorum unumquodque æter- nam, et infinitam essentiam exprimit.

    By God I understand what is of absolutely infinite being, that is, a substance consisting of an infinity of attributes, of which each one expresses an eternal and infinite essence.

Franssens aims in his music to express the universal, his sources of inspiration are amongst others, the poet Pessoa and the philosopher Spinoza. In a rich tonal language, his music evokes strong emotions in both a public unacquainted with contemporary classical music as well as specialized listeners. From the start of Franssens' career, his music has been performed outside the Netherlands. He has worked with choirs such as the Swedish Radio Choir, BBC Singers, Latvian National State Choir and the Netherlands Chamber Choir. The latter took Franssens music on tour through Europe and the USA, led by the Estonian conductor Tõnu Kaljuste. Well-known conductors like Yakov Kreizberg, Lucas Foss, Gerd Albrecht and Daniel Raiskin performed his works with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Tallinn Chamber Orchestra and the Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra.

    VU-KAMERKOOR
    The VU-Kamerkoor was founded in 1968 and consists of 30 young, experienced choral singers. Most of them are rooted in the Amsterdam student community. Since 1991, the chamber choir has been under the direction of Boudewijn Jansen. Its main objective is to expertly perform choral music from a wide variety of stylistic periods. This results in concerts that vary from classical to contemporary music. Over the years, the chamber choir has worked with several special guests, like the renowned Bach specialist Ton Koopman, the Russian-Dutch cellist Dmitri Ferschtman, Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian and the American composer Frank Ferko. The latter wrote the composition 'La Remontée des Cendres' especially for the VU-Kamerkoor.

    ENSEMBLE WATERLOO
    Ensemble Waterloo was founded by Boudewijn Jansen in 2009 and consists of the finest players from the major orchestras and chamber music ensembles in Holland, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

  • Echo || Joep Franssens

    8:27

    Joep Franssens en uno de los compositores clásicos-contemporáneos que mas me gustan. Aunque no muy conocido por el público general, su obra (junto con las obras de otros compositores) revolucionaron la música moderna.
    Echo (1983) fue escrita para 4 flautas, 3 oboes, 3 trompetas, vibráfono, marimba y cuerdas, aunque el movimiento que uso es solo de cuerdas. Domina la disonancia y genera una atmósfera muy especial y profunda, y me pareció que calzaba perfectamente con el sonido del drum and bass clásico. Ese bien oscuro (notaran el guiño que le hice a Aphex Twin).
    Espero que les guste.

  • Henryk Górecki - Three Dances w/ score

    14:23

    Three Dances - for orchestra
    Written by Henryk Górecki

    Performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Antoni Wit

    © PWM Edition

    The piece contains 3 movements:

    00:00 - I.
    03:03 - II.
    08:19 - III.

    Three Dances for orchestra was commissioned from Górecki by the Rybnik Philharmonic. The composer took up this commission largely for sentimental reasons: It was in Rybnik’s Secondary Music School that he began his formal musical education. Among the important figures for musical life in the town, and for Górecki’s own development, there were the Szafranek brothers, Karol and Antoni. As a student in the local music school, the future composer played violin in the Rybnik Philharmonic Orchestra.
    He gladly accepted the request to compose a piece for the Philharmonic as an opportunity for a kind of “sentimental journey back in time”. The resulting music – the striking Three Dances for orchestra – clearly look back to the past. They are maintained in a lively, rhythmically fervent neoclassical style. Energetic opening and closing dances are contrasted with the lyrical, highly expressive central piece, played by the strings.
