Biography Hendrik de Regt

1950

Hendrik de Regt was born on July 5, 1950 in Rotterdam.


Education

He studied piano and organ in his native town, and theory and composition with Piet Ketting, a pupil of Willem Pijper.


Compositions

From the outset, de Regt's compositions have stressed melodic and polyphonic lines within a clear harmonic context. He is drawn to musical tradition and enjoys linking early musical forms with modern ones to create a stylistic synthesis. For de Regt, the most important goal of a composition is the satisfaction of the performers and listeners derive from hearing the piece. In his opinion, a work should be understandable by each component of the interconnected triad of composer, performer and listener. For this reason, he avoids extreme experiments in composition, because performers and listeners did not request for same, and strives for a style that is accessible to listeners. De Regt composes a variety of vocal and instrumental music. In addition to the publications of Egge-Verlag, his music is available through Dorn Publications, Wehr's MusicHouse, and PRB Productions (United States); Donemus (The Netherlands); DMP and Lantro Music (Belgium).
