About

This month CPO add another volume to their rediscovery of a significant early-twentieth-century Dutch composer. Gilse stood squarely on the foundation of tonal late romanticism and wrote music of dazzling beauty. His sumptuous, romantic, and ravishing orchestral music abounds in pathos, drama, and passion. His Variations on a St Nicholas Song earned him fame with the Dutch public – the theme is a popular children’s song about a steamboat arriving from Spain.
