Ep.20 - Henriëtte Bosmans’ Impressions


Henriëtte Bosmans was a Dutch-born composer who toured all across Europe. Her country, the Netherlands, has an interesting history, one of war, defeat, and victory. The people of the Netherlands wanted greater individual rights and freedoms, and fought to battle their government’s abuse of power. And years after this battle would conclude, Bosmans wrote her original composition, Impressions. The date of composition is currently unknown, but it was of course written during Bosmans’ lifetime, so its history aligns with hers. Indeed, Europe’s history would go to interesting places during Bosmans’ lifetime. Today, The Piano Histories podcast will share the history of Henriëtte Bosmans’ Impressions, as well as the history of the Netherlands.
