Nelly (Pétro) Van Doesburg | Repertoire De Stijl : Bauhaus : Dada

Overview of the avant-garde piano repertoire of Nelly aka Pétro van Doesburg, performed at various De Stijl, Dada and Bauhaus soirees in Europe between 1920 and 1925. Born in Holland in 1899, Nelly met De Stijl movement founder and propagandist Theo van Doesburg in 1920. Over the next decade the couple lived in Wiemar (where Theo was associated with the influential Bauhaus art and architecture school) and then 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. Following Theo's death in 1931, Nelly established the De Stijl archive.
The material on this 76 minute CD, performed by noted Dutch pianist Peter Beijersbergen van Henegouwen, includes pieces by Erik Satie, Josef Matthias Hauer, Arnold Schoenberg, Francis Poulenc, Arthur Honegger and Jacob van Domselaer, whose austere Proeven Van Stijlkunst (1913-17) offers an application of Piet Mondriaan's neo-plastic principles to musical composition. The CD also features a deluxe booklet featuring archive images and detailed historical notes.
