Velperbuitensingel 25, Arnhem

Musis Sacrum

Concert hall, built in 1847, altered in 1864, 1889 and 1983. Bartók appeared in this hall in 1925 together with the violinist Zoltán Székely. Arnhem had an early link with Mahler. In 1903 sounded his Third Symphony: the Dutch première, some days before the performance in Amsterdam under Mahler’s baton. In 1906 Mengelberg conducted the Concertgebouw Orchestra with the Fifth Symphony. That’s why the adjacent café has been baptized Grandcafé Mahler.

Berg en Dalseweg 127, Nijmegen

Béla Bartók stayed here in autumn 1925 with the violinist Zoltán Székely. The two were befriended; Bartók dedicated the 2nd Rhapsody and the 2nd Violin Concerto to Zoltan. During this visit they worked at Székely’s transcription of the Rumanian Folk Dances for Violin and piano. They gave concerts in Arnhem and Utrecht.

I - O Liszt - carillon

Gasthuisstraat 34, Zaltbommel

Gasthuiskapel

The former chapel (1316), now concert hall, has the disposal of two 18th century organs and a Érard grand from 1875. Outside is a plaque of Franz Liszt, recalling a nice story. The composer, traveling by boat on the Waal river in 1842, was struck by the sound of the Hemony carillon from 1654 and visited the player, the municipal organist Carolus Leenhoff. The latter’s daughter Suzanne was a talented pianist and through Liszt’s intervention could study in Paris. There she made a living as pianist and met the famous painter Edouard Manet, with whom she married in Zaltbommel in 1863.

Zaltbommel was the birthplace of Peter van Anrooy (1879-1954), conductor of the Residentieorkest in the Hague and composer of the still popular Piet Hein Rhapsodie (1901).

J pianos - (Beethoven)

Zaadmarkt 88, Zutphen

MuziekMuseum

During a tour of Beethoven’s parents in 1772 as singers in the group of comedians of a certain Carl Gondorff, Magdalena may have given birth to a son in Zutphen. Because there was no catholic priest, they could not instantly obtain a baptismal certificate and they decided to use that of their previous son Ludwig, born in 1770 but shortly afterwards deceased. That means that the composer actually should not have been born in 1770, but in 1772, and not in Bonn but in Zutphen! Moreover, Beethoven himself thought that he was born in 1772 ─ that is a matter of fact; nevertheless the above theory is up to now put aside as ‘rumour’.

In the new music museum he is a central figure amidst the collection of historic pianos, belonging to the Conservatory of Amsterdam; they were formerly exposed in the Geelvinckhuis there and the intention is that they will once return to Amsterdam; so the future of the museum is insecure.

Bad news: in November 2019, the museum was forced to close its doors. Geelvinck has still another address, Kamperweg 23, Heerde – not a museum. For actual news, cf. www.geelvinck.nl .
