George Beentjes – The Gentleman Composer

In today’s modern hectic world many long for a return to a more nostalgic era where elegance, style and refined manners never went out of fashion

‘Let these timeless songs of joy and sorrow carry you away into a musical landscape well over a century ago’

Welcome to the works of George Beentjes,
Gentleman Composer and Pianist 

While traveling to Weimar, the USA and Mexico in spring 2017, the combination of classic poetry, rich in symbolism, and the ever changing landscapes left a profound impression and nourished the inspiration to compose nine songs.
After two previous albums based on virtuosity, this third album signifies a tremendous shift, a return to the core, tranquility, beauty and grace.

Recordings took place under supervision of Galaxy Studios in Belgium in Autumn 2017. The vocals brilliantly executed by the gifted soprano Christy Luth who obtained her Masters degree of Classical Singing at Prins Claus Conservatory Groningen (June 2019)

“What you have created will comfort and inspire many … it is a great gift of your soul and I am deeply touched and inspired by it.”
~ Kimberlee Dray, Violinist ~
