Editor's info:
Oscar van Hemel (1892-1981) was born in Antwerp, Belgium. His father cut cardboard books for barrel organs as an arranger and had a passion for brass bands. This characterized the childhood of Oscar, who played the violin and piano. In 1914, van Hemel successfully completed his violin studies at the Antwerp Conservatory. Three days later, on his birthday, World War I broke out.
Van Hemel was a moderately modern composer who used classical musical forms combined with atonal harmonies and melodies. He applied the twelve-tone technique, bitonality, “germ cell technique” and serialism but continued to strive to captivate his audience through lyricism. In the First Violin Concerto, for instance, the orchestration is particularly colourful and accessible.

Frans Douwe Slot (piano)
Frans Douwe Slot (1983) received his bachelor’s degree at the former Noord-Nederlands Conservatorium, where he studied with Tamara Poddubnaya and Nata Tsvereli. He then continued his studies at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht with Klára Würtz, where he graduated cum laude for his master’s degree. In 2009, he studied at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest with Balázs Szokolay. Frans Douwe has won several prises in competitions like the Prinses Christina Concours, the international music competition Hopes, Talents, Masters, the Schubert Competition in Bulgaria, and the Maria Yudina Festival in Saint-Petersburg. He has recorded two solo CDs and he has performed in Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria, Russia and Guatemala. In November 2014, after a long medical search, Frans Douwe was diagnosed with focal dystonia. After an intensive medical rehabilitation, he has returned to the concert stage, starting by playing in ensembles. Since 2021, Frans Douwe is giving solo recitals again and is very active in various chamber music performances.

Muriël van Hemel (violin)
Muriël van Hemel is the Grand Daughter of Oscar van Hemel.
In the Noord Nederlands Orkest, she is a regular member of the first violin group. She really enjoys this challenging job. Muriël also founded the van Hemel Ensemble to bring her grandfather’s chamber music back into the spotlight. She is getting to know him better as a person through his music because, unfortunately, Muriël hardly got to know him in real life.
