The Concertzender has been around for forty years. In all those years, the station has consistently put Dutch contemporary music on the map. In three special Theme programmes, Mark van de Voort puts the spotlight on ‘CZ Hollandia’. In other words, a series of programmes with highlights from the catalogue of Dutch contemporary music.

In addition to some of the well-known hits, the programmes will also features modern music from the Netherlands that deserves to be rediscovered. Absolute classics together with forgotten gems.

The 1990s are highlighted in this programme. This was a period in which composers embraced the beauty of sound and tonality without fear, but in which individuality and experiment were also celebrated. The Concertzender did not hesitate to put this extremely colourful decade in the spotlight. More than ever, composers re-established the bond with their audience. You will hear music by Simeon ten Holt, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Ton Bruynèl, Paul Termos and Joep Franssens.
