About Paul Sanders
(12/21/1891 - ?)
His musical legacy is modest but nonetheless fascinating. Many of his compositions demonstrate social engagement and sometimes are more explicit: e.g. 'Plan Song' for the Dutch Labour Party (SDAP). With his music reviews in the socialist newspaper Het Volk (The People) he hoped to lure the working class into the concert hall and to move them up the social ladder. In addition to composing and writing about music, he was also active as a music editor, organiser, and director. Although nearly forgotten today, he was a distinguished and very productive figure in the pre-war Dutch music industry.
