Press Quotes

"Andriessen’s first orchestral work in 45 years is an impressive, extremely personal and complex work with numerous layers and meanings, a veritable sampling of the 74-year-old composer's musical toolbox."
NRC Handelsblad

"Mysteriën is flawless, mature Andriessen... inspired by the 16th century writer Thomas a Kempis. Gritty block chords express the world's vanity that the mystic Renaissance author berates and criticizes... Every rhythmic layer has its own sense of time."
De Volkskrant
