Who is Bernard van Dieren?
Posted by Pete Buxton on June 12, 2016, 10:53 pm
In his June 2016 review for Naxos's Portuguese Music for Cello & Orchestra', Rob Barnett says "You need to think in terms of the Bernard van Dieren Elegy and..." What's that supposed to mean though? How many readers does he seriously expect to be familiar with Bernard van Dieren? Who IS Bernard van Dieren?! It's a pity when reviewers do this kind of thing - most don't, fortunately, but the odd ones do. It seems more like showing off than anything.
