Lex van Delden
Although he started to read medicine at the University of Amsterdam Van Delden soon turned to music, studying the piano with Cor de Groot. As a composer he remained self-taught, albeit strongly influenced by the Dutch composer Willem Pijper and the French masters of the 20th Century.
Van Delden produced a varied oeuvre of more than 100 works many of which feature unusual combinations of instruments. Recently, his String Quartets were highly praised by the New York Times in a review of a recording of these works.
