Bernard van Dieren

The mostly self-taught composer Bernard van Dieren, born in Rotterdam on 27 December 1887, settled in London. He became a cult figure with some leading intellectuals, whose advocacy mostly fell on deaf ears. This neglect has never changed, and we can only note that he left an opera, a symphony and chamber works. He was a distinctive writer, and there is a collection of his musical criticism. He died in London on 24 April 1936.
