Own compositions

Today we distinguish between composers and musicians, which is historically illogical. All great composers played one or more instruments, allowing them to fine-tune the music they wrote to the instrument in question. Within time this, method will be lost. Many performing musicians never write music themselves and therefore can not put themselves in the shoes of the composers whose music they play. That is why I started composing myself: hoping that besides that I want to write beautiful music, I can create a better understanding of music that others have written. You can hear the result on April 26th in the Oosterkerk in Amsterdam, where I will play pieces from the greats of the earth, next to my own work. ' - pianist Mattias Spee
