4. Er mag van geen vrouw

6. Zij rees van hem op
7. Toen floot de stoomfluit
8. En eens dat zij voor Averia lagen
9. En toen hij opkeek naar de hemel

About Ignace Lilien

Ignace Lilien

His hometown Lemberg, in the Ukraine known as Lviv, and in Poland as Lwów, has a history of occupation by shifting powers. This is why the Germans had trouble figuring out Ignace Lilien's real identity; he survived the war with forged documents. He worked as a chemical engineer, but that didn’t stop him from composing a large oeuvre. His life was as varied as his music, with influences ranging from Polish modernism to South American rhythms and timbres.
