Toelichting:
Dick Kattenburg studied violin and composition with Hugo Godron (composer and teacher at the local music school) and in 1941, he passed his state exams in theory and violin. During the war, Kattenburg followed lessons in orchestration with Dutch composer Leo Smit – at first in private sessions at Smit’s home address, later on, when Kattenburg was in hiding and Smit was forced to move to a ghetto, via secret correspondence.
Many of Dick Kattenburg’s compositions breathe an optimism of the new era, but are also downright romantic. He imbued jazz rhythms and polytonality, French music (Ravel) and Stravinsky's Neoclassicism in several of his works. Captivating, lyrical melodies (his trademark) are often interspersed with energetic rhythmical passages.
In March and April 1938, Dick Kattenburg composed Escapades and dedicated its first movement to his friend, the painter and amateur violinist Theo Kroeze (1916-1988). Kroeze in turn painted Kattenburg behind the piano. He played a role in the resistance and survived the war in hiding. The sketch of the second movement “Andante con amore” is dedicated to a certain Mies. A drawing of heart and arrow gives a clear understanding about the message of this dedication. In the estate of Dick’s sister Daisy, who survived the war in hiding, a set of sketches was found as well as parts written out in ink with a decorated title page containing the subtitle ‘Suite pour deux violons’.
Dick Kattenburg was arrested end of April, early May 1944, possibly during a raid in a movie theater. From transit camp Westerbork, he was deported to Auschwitz on 19 May 1944. According to his death certificate, he died ‘somewhere in Central Europe’ on 30 September that same year.
After the war, Escapades was first performed on 14th May 2007 by Marijke van Kooten and Jacobien Rozemond during the Uilenburg Concert series of the Leo Smit Foundation.
