Andriessen: where to find sheet music?


Recommended Posts

I have been unsuccessfully trying to find somewhere to buy Hendrik Andriessen's 'Thema met Variaties': it is widely enough played that I assumed it would be easy to find. I'm currently learning it off a photocopy, but wanted to actually buy a proper copy if possible. I was also impressed by the same composer's 'Premier Choral' which I heard and fancied having a look at, but, again, haven't been able to track it down. Has anybody got any ideas, please?

Good afternoon

There is a query on your discussion board "The organ and its music" about music by Henk Andriessen. As I'm not a member, perhaps you could pass this information on to the enquirer or post it yourself.

Kind regards

Is there any reason why the theme and variations is no longer available from uk music shops? My copy is approaching 40 years old and close to disintegration, I had tried, without success to source a replacement and had assumed it was out of print. I believe it was an ARCO test piece in the late 70s or early 80s, has it fallen so far from grace?

If you haven't yet found a copy of the Andriessen Theme & Variations, we have copies available at the English Organ School price £10.

I tried, and failed, to find a website for EOS through Google. How would I go about buying a copy from you or finding what else you have available?

It's also offered on the http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/ website at £14.33, but with the warning that they are currently out of stock and it may take several weeks to get. That site has several of his other organ compositions. There are also several organ compositions (but not the Thema).


Both of those sites now stock quite a lot of other Dutch music not previously available (as far as I know) in England, including music by Feike Asma, Willem Twillert and the Zwarts, J and WH.
