About a great man of passion

"Matthijs Vermeulen is one of the most original composers of the 20th century.His music opens a world of intensity, positive and vively obsession, a sky of pure emotions. His person as his music is (positively!)unconventional and highly personal.I got the feeling: you love it or you don't!I like it a lot!! It's the same case with Allan Pettersson (1911-80)
This label brings his music slower than the other of donemus. The second symphony takes 25'here and the donemus about 20'. I prefer the donemus because I have the feeling that vermeulen wanted the tempi faster and the drive is more intense with donemus.But it's well done! For that 4 stars. Try this music, it's an overwhelming feeling: so much passion!"
