About the album

Theo Bruins was born in Arnhem on November 25, 1929. He studied piano with Jaap Spaanderman at the Amsterdam School of Music, and gave his first concerts and recitals in 1946. From 1948 to 1950 he studied in Paris with Yves Nat. In 1960, after a recital in London, he was awarded the Harriet Cohen Beethoven Medal. The repertoire played by Theo Bruins included practically the whole of musical history, but in concert he only performed those pieces which intrigued him. In May 1991 the first symptoms of a fatal illness declared themselves, and he died on January 8, 1993 as a result of this disease, after he had been forced to abandon his career as concert pianist from June 1992 onwards. In a commemorative article Jan van Vlijmen, composer and director of the Holland festival, wondered rightly whether concert audiences and even many of his fellow-composers did realise how great a musician they had lost.
