De Stijl / Bauhaus / Dada - Piano Repertoire 1913-1931 CD 25377
Piano Repertoire of De Stijl, Bauhaus, and Dada performed by Nelly (Petro) van Doesburg. Born in Holland in 1899, Nelly first met Theo van Doesburg in 1920. Over the next decade the couple lived in Holland, Weimar (where Theo was associated with the influential Bauhaus school) and Paris. A Conservatory-trained pianist, Nelly accompanied her husband's lectures with selected modernist piano pieces, and also performed at Salon Dada soirees organised by Theo with Kurt Schwitters in Holland and Germany in 1922/23. Her repertoire included pieces by Satie, Hauer, Schoenberg, Poulenc, Honegger and Jacob van Domselaer, whose austere Proeven van Stijlkunst (1913-17) is a musical application of Piet Mondrian's neo-plastic principles. The 76 minute CD is performed by pianist Peter Beijersbergen van Henegouwen; the deluxe booklet features archive images and detailed historical notes.
