Jaap van Zweden appointed as Ambassador Dutch Composers
Nieuw Geneco appointed Jaap van Zweden as Ambassador Dutch Composers. He plans to promote new compositions and performances in the Netherlands and abroad, in collaboration with Nieuw Geneco.
Jaap van Zweden: “In addition to my appointment as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, it is a strong desire of mine to present Dutch contemporary music even more explicitly. I love new music. That is also why I find this ambassadorship very honorable. Dutch music from the 20th and 21st century deserves a prominent place in the repertoire of ensembles, orchestras and festivals. I aim to take the role very seriously; in New York, but also with the other wonderful orchestras, through which I will bring attention to the great work of new Dutch composers.”
Nieuw Geneco presents Jaap van Zweden as Ambassador Dutch Composers at Classical:NEXT, May 25-28 in Rotterdam. He selected a team of eleven Dutch composers that he highly recommends: Michel van der Aa, Louis Andriessen, Willem Jeths, Theo Loevendie, Martijn Padding, Richard Rijnvos, Joey Roukens, Calliope Tsoupaki, JacobTV, Klaas de Vries and Rob Zuidam.

In addition he is enthusiastic about all composers, regardless of their style. Therefore exciting commissions, performances and projects with Dutch composers will take place in the upcoming years.reference:nieuwgeneco.nl
