About

Simeon ten Holt's unmistakable minimalist style is the driving force behind Canto Ostinato, one of the composer's most famous works. Canto Ostinato is the best-loved Dutch piano composition of the 20th century, with its mesmerising melodies never failing to soothe the mind.

The instruments and number of performers for the piece are unspecified. Written 'for keyboard instruments', the work has been recorded many times with piano, but this unique set brings together 12 arrangements of the work - for piano, as well as for organ, marimba and synthesizer.

With a variety of recording venues ranging from throughout The Netherlands to Canada, this compilation is a must-have addition to any classical music collection.

Jeroen van Veen is a leading light in modern piano performance, as well as a successful composer. Chairman of the Simeon ten Holt Foundation, he has won critical acclaim with ensembles such as the International Piano Quartet, DJ Piano and Jeroen van Veen & Friends.
