Robert Nasveld is the favourite interpretor of Crumb’s music which he masters completely in technical and in interpretative sense.
Nasveld has always been a wayward composer, showing little interest in trends.
Even when things could theoretically become serious, for example in Six Cavafy songs (2009), a song cycle using the poetry of Greek poet Kavafis, the tone remains springlike and sparking.
Exceptionally beautiful music, although its beauty is not pastoral, but contradictory, unstable, disturbing, capable of stimulating all spiritual forces of the listener.
He understands my music as no other.
Pianist and composer Robert Nasveld is an outsider; as radio producer and indefatigable advocate of American composer George Crumb he is a man of significance.
