Annelie de Man


This page is dedicated to my wife Annelie de Man, who passed away on September 29th 2010. We were happy together for more than 50 years, married for 43 years, and our relationship was artistically also most inspiring. I composed several pieces for her, with and without electronics, and she performed them brilliantly all over the world. Annelie understood what composing was about and many composers found collaborating with her about a new piece very stimulating. She was a dedicated performer and I know her excellent recordings will continue to be an inspiration to all who are interested in contemporary harpsichord music. Below is a list of the pieces I wrote for her.
