Simeon ten Holt was a Dutch contemporary classical composer. Ten Holt was born in Bergen, North Holland, the Netherlands, and studied with Jakob van Domselaer, eventually developing a highly personal style of minimal composition. Van Domselaers influence on ten Holts musical philosophy was considerable, with the younger composer picking up van Domselaers interests in the links between music and visual art, in musics relationship with mathematics, and in the use of the piano as a principal instrument in his compositions.
Simeon ten Holt is a Dutch composer born in 1923. He studied with Jakob van Domselaer and in Paris with Milhaud and Honegger, then went through various compositional phases, first struggling out of van Domselaer's tonal influence, then becoming serially tonal (Berg obviously proves that this in no contradiction in terms), e.g. striving to organize the tonal material according to serial principles.
