Adriaan Valk

“Ik probeer de stilte te verleiden tot spreken,
te laten horen wat er in het onzichtbare schuilgaat”
Adriaan Valk

Composer Adriaan Valk (1943) has occupied a special place in Dutch music history for more than forty years. His style cannot be captured in a few words. However, his music is widely applicable. Theatre makers, choreographers and film directors are inspired by it. At the age of 16 Adriaan received his first saxophone lessons with Harmonie Apollo in Zaandijk (the Netherlands). In 1963 he auditions at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. The committee awarded him a scholarship for 'extraordinary talent'. After his military service Adriaan went to the conservatory of Amsterdam. There he graduates cum laude in 1972 in the main subjects Clarinet and Saxophone. From 1965-1974 he replaced as a clarinettist and saxophonist in the "Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest". In the mid-1970s Adriaan started composing. He calls himself an 'intuitive composer'. His music is characterised by a clear and tight structure. In 1989 his saxophone quartet 'Perspectief' was awarded a prize by the Dutch Fund for Creative Music.
