Hendrik Andriessen - Miroir de peine

Hendrik Andriessen (1892-1981) was a Dutch composer, and father of the more famous composer Louis Andriessen. His style showed a clear French influence. I have selected his beautiful song cycle Miroir de Peine, originally for voice and piano from 1923, orchestrated in 1933. Relevant links below.
