Theme and Variations

THEME AND VARIATIONS by Eugène den Hoed Muziekuitgeverij Iduna V.O.F. 12pp. Right from the start this piece makes quite an arresting effect as the Theme itself is in single notes and its intervals are quite wide in range, thus making for quite an unusual yet completely tonal idea that immedaitely makes one wonder exactly the composer could go with such an idea as this. Having seen a number of this gentleman’s pieces now I can firmly recommend them as music worth playing, and Eugène den Hoed as a composer whose ideas are excitingly original yet utterly approachable. Chris Dumigan – Classical Guitar, june 2007
