"The string tone is on the steely side, while the piano seems well captured, but there is some pedal action noise, particularly in the Romance. However, with music this rare, we're lucky to have what's here."

About the album

Paulus Folkertsma, Frisian composer.

Composer Paulus Folkertsma plays an important role in the musical history of Fryslân (province of the Netherlands). He was born on January 15, 1901 in Wommels. Five years later, the family moved to Berlikum, where young Paulus got his first violin lessons from master Groenewold, the local teacher. When at age 14 Paulus went to the Maastricht College of Education for teachers, music became ever more important to him. This is where he wrote his first compositions. After temporary appointments in Leeuwarden and Sondel, he became a school teacher at the public primary school in Aldeboarn, where he worked for over 40 years. In 1956 he married Viennese Helga Khek; they had four children. Paulus Folkertsma passed away on May 4, 1972 in Aldeboarn.
Paulus Folkertsma, Frysk komponist.

In de muziekgeschiedenis van Fryslân speelt de componist Paulus Folkertsma een belangrijke rol. Hij werd op 15 januari 1901 geboren te Wommels. Vijf jaar later verhuisde het gezin naar Berlikum waar de jonge Paulus zijn eerste vioollessen kreeg van meester Groenewold, de plaatselijke onderwijzer. Toen hij op 14-jarige leeftijd naar Maastricht ging om aan de rijkskweekschool voor onderwijzer te studeren, kreeg de muziek een steeds grotere betekenis in zijn leven. Hier schreef hij zijn eerste composities. Na tijdelijke aanstellingen in Leeuwarden en Sondel werd hij benoemd aan de openbare lagere school te Aldeboarn, waar hij meer dan 40 jaar als onderwijzer werkzaam bleef. In 1956 trouwde hij met de Weense Helga Khek; zij kregen vier kinderen. Paulus Folkertsma overleed op 4 mei 1972 in Aldeboarn.
