Douwe Eisenga was born on December 25th, 1961. After a short career in pop music, Douwe Eisenga studied composition at the Conservatory in Groningen (NL). Firmly shaken by all sorts of contemporary composing techniques, it took a while until Eisenga found his own sound after his study.
Around 2001 this own musical language developed rapidly, which resulted in the chamberopera ‘Kabaal’, the large-scale ‘Requiem’ and the premiere of his ‘Piano Concerto’ in Yokohama, Japan.
He worked with the writer David Mitchell for the project ‘Cloud Atlas’, and with theatercompany Schweiman+ for the danceperformance ‘Wiek’.
Since 2010 his music attained more and more attention worldwide. Pianists such as Jeroen van Veen (NL), Lisa Kaplan (US), Nicolas Horvath (FR) & Francesco di Fiore (IT), and harpist Assia Cunego (Germ) play Eisenga’s music in America, Canada, China and Europe.
His ‘Requiem’ was done again in Rumania, the Italian ensemble PADS recorded the album House of Mirrors and harpist Lavinia Meijer premiered several compositions.
The Claudia Schreier Dance Company premiered the ballet Harmonic in NYC, followed by Charge and Pulse, all set on Eisenga’s music. In 2014 followed the music for The Writer, his Wife, her Mistress, performed by the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet.
Recent projects are ‘Momentum’ as part of the National Celebration of Liberation in 2015, the premiere of ‘Bliss‘ by Cello8tet Amsterdam and ‘Echoes‘ for the Belgian ensemble Origami. At the moment, Eisenga is writing music for the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble.
