Young composer writes piece for Prinsjesdag

The States General has commissioned a composition specially written for the United Assembly at Prinsjesdag by 26-year-old Dutch composer Max van Platen. This piece, "Ode al vento" (Ode to the Wind), will be performed at Prinsjesdag for the first time by our own brass quintet. Van Platen: "I tried to capture the character of Prinsjesdag in notes."
