Romanze by Karel Hamm (YouTube)

Camiel wants to enrich the classical music canon by reviving unknown composers. On June 4th 2021 Camiel will release his new album ‘Rediscovered’ on Challenge Records Int. dedicated to the forgotten music of Dutch composer Gerhard Hamm (1835-1904) and his son Karel Hamm (1876-1937)

And now, discovering the music by Dutch composer Gerhard Hamm and his son Karel Hamm was really a game of fate. Camiel recalls: “After a recital, Carl Hamm, who is a direct descendant, gave me a stack of scores. While playing through the pieces at home I was struck by their delicacy and narrative power.” Both Gerhard and Karel have a great musical legacy; from chamber music to songs and from orchestral works to pieces for solo piano.

This video was recorded in 2021 in the Kröller-Müller museum Otterlo.
