Dutch Romantics: Bernard Zweers Symphony No.3
Bernard Zweer's music is candid in style. It is a combination of elements relating to 19th century Dutch folk-song and Wagner stylistic characteristics from the middel creatice period. Once the composer had found his own style, he kept to it; this was in about 1890, the time of this symphony, to my fatherland. He would not allow his work to be affected by the late-romantic and impressionistic influences.
