I admit that I am fortunate enough to have off-air recordings of van Dieren's Chinese Symphony and the Elegy for Cello and orchestra-both interesting works. But, even if I had never heard any van Dieren or had never heard of him at all I would be intrigued. The Wikipedia article would intrigue me further: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_van_Dieren
and I would be grateful to have another composer brought to my attention.
And at least this has made me aware of Lyrita's plans to issue a cd of the Chinese Symphony!
