Press Quotes

Deutsch

"Do you recognize van der Aa if he’s composing unplugged? Straight away! Sharp cutting sounds interrupt the brittle cantilena presented by the soloist accompanied by harp and winds. There’s a built-in nervous energy... The third movement is a virtuoso showpiece for Jansen and the percussion section, an area where van der Aa’s writing excels." NRC Handelsblad

"It’s a real concerto; a musical duel between the soloist and the orchestra with challenging music for both partners. The skill of van der Aa’s writing and his musical approach is in a word ‘sensational’ with an immediately recognizable personal style."
De Trouw
