Listening to uploads of Dutch organists on Contrebombarde, especially those of psalm preludes, the impression could arise, that Dutch organ playing was and is very much influenced by the romantic style of organists like Jan Zwart and Feike Asma, van Tilburg etc.
They certainly still have a big influence , especially among amateur-organists and the more conservative Dutch Christian population.
There even are contemporary composers writing in that romantic idiom.
In professional circles there has been a different development. Those who studied the organ at the Dutch conservatoria, populated by the best Dutch organ teachers, mostly developed a different kind of style, more along the lines of the contemporary German composers like Micheelsen, Distler and Pepping and French composers Tournemire, Langlais and Durufle.
In the seventies bundles were published with preludes to the Liedboek 1973, composed by leading contemporary Dutch composers.
I intend to do a small series on preludes and harmonizations of the psalms.
Bert Lassing (1940)
studied the Organ and Choir Direction at the Conservatorium in Amsterdam with teachers like Jan Pasveer, Piet Kee and Anton Kersjes.
From 1970 on he was the organist of the BarbaraChurch in Culemborg. He composed, gave many organ concerts throughout Holland and abroad, sometimes with his own choir.
Though now retired, he was one of Hollands prominent organists.
