"I am deeply attracted to Rijndert’s music. His exceptional talent is apparent in the beauty of his harmony and structure. Above all, I strongly sense the preciousness of life in his music. I am very much looking forward to his next composition, the opera “Dejima”."

"In my opinion, Rijndert van Woudenberg is a unique Dutch composer, searching for new lyrical expression through music and texts. His approach touched me from the first moment I heard his music and moves audience all over the world.

 

I know Rijndert by working with him on several compositions and touring with his works in the Netherlands and abroad. From my experiences I learned, that Rijndert has a strong sensitive communicative quality of his pieces, knows how to reach his public and express strong emotional subjects.

 

He is also a very skilled composer, he knows how to use specific instruments and especially how to write good vocal lines. I enjoyed working with Rijndert a lot and consider him as one of the most promising composers of our generation."
