'au depart de B'
Thanks to Aad van Nieuwkerk, radio presentor and editor of for his lovely
podcast about my work ’au depart de B’ played by Eddy Janning
composed for Jaqueline Smit’s 24Preludia project.

‘Bach. And now?
What the Bible is to believers, Johann Sebastian Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier is to musicians. ‘Bach. En nu? is a podcast series about contemporary piano music, made by Aad van Nieuwkerk, in which the composers themselves talk about their prelude. Twice 24 preludes, written by as many contemporary Dutch composers - in every key, just like in Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier.
