Paul Frankhuijzen

Dutch composer Paul Frankhuijzen is intrigued
to work with different disciplines and to
incorporate those in the composing process.
There for the main theme is inspiration and
not confrontation. It is a blend of cultures.



Featured works

Chamber opera
(2002)

It becomes clear that Paul
Frankhuijzen has an interest
in early music.
The performers are confronted
with the mythical stratification
throughout the centuries.
An opera in which sacral rituals
as well as contemporary
complexity merge into one
sole sound.
 


String quartet
(2009)

The tittle comes from American/
Indian internet company which
supplies 'back office' services.

That collaboration and those
cultural connections were for
Paul the reason to compose 
'The Office Tiger'.

It's a musical touch between
East and West.
 


Piano, voice and violin
(2001)

This titel comes from the
Japanese No theater.
The meaning is introduction,
development and finale.
These elements have a great
inspiration on the composition
Johakyû.
 

Mixed media
(2022)

It becomes clear that Paul Frankhuijzen
has an interest in early music.
The performers are confronted with the
mythical stratification throughout the
centuries. An opera in which sacral rituals
as well as contemporary complexity merge
into one sole sound.
