Melchior Huurdeman: “I chose these composers because their music moves me and because the person behind the notes intrigues me. I have been following them for many years and they are all alive and kicking. After my fascination of visiting composers’ houses (Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt), it was time for me to ring the doorbell of living composers. My curiosity: does their workspace also fits the feeling I have always had while listening to their music?”
