K -E Lustig

Martinikerkhof 3, Groningen

Martinikerk

Organ by Johan ten Damme (?), 1481, enlarged by Schnitger in 1691-1740 with older parts; III/p/53 . There is a smaller organ by Le Picard from 1744.

Grave of Jacob Wilhelm Lustig. Born I Hamburg in 1706, he was working here from 1728 until his death in 1796. He was a pupil of Telemann and Mattheson and more popular as organist and teacher than as composer. More important are his writings and translations in Dutch of works by Quantz, Werckmeister, Burney and Pasquali.

carillon

Sint Hippolytustoren

Carillon by François Hemony from 1662. Perhaps the best preserved instrument from the workshop of the famous bell founders François and Pieter Hemony, because the still complete set of 23 bells has kept its original condition and tuning thanks to the absence of any air pollution (unlike the other extant Hemony sets, all in bigger towns). The addition in 1949 of seven more bells by the firm Eijsbouts doesn’t harm. The 15th century church itself, with fine wall paintings, is worth seeing too.

O Dopper - C

Raadhuisplein 2, Stadskanaal

The composer and conductor Cornelis Dopper was born in Stadskanaal in 1870. From 1897 until his death in 1939 he worked in Amsterdam, partly as second conductor of the Concertgebouworkest. His many compositions, often interlarded with Dutch folk melodies, had a varying acceptance.

The statue by Loek Bos was erected in 2009.

F O Folkertsma

Weaze 30, Oldeboorn/Aldeboarn

House of the school teacher and self-taught composer Paulus Folkertsma (1901-1972). His c. 100 compositions could have been written in the second half of the 19th century, but are still worth listening to (such as his string quartet from 1943). His vocal works are all on Frisian texts.

Folkertsma was buried at the local cemetery.

I Lowlands festival

Biddinghuizen

The province of Flevoland is the impoldered part of the IJsselmeer and inhabited only since the second half of the 20th century. The lack of musical history is compensated since 1993 by the yearly Lowlands pop festival (August), a Woodstock-like happening, including theatre, lectures and even some classical music; a vivacious family party for 60.000 visitors, lasting three days and nights.
