A comprehensive overview of the avant-garde piano repertoire of Nelly (aka Pétro) van Doesburg, performed at De Stijl, Dada and Bauhaus events in Europe between 1920 and 1925.

Born in the Netherlands in 1899, Nelly met dynamic De Stijl founder Theo van Doesburg in 1920. Over the next decade the couple lived in Wiemar, where Theo was an associate of the influential Bauhaus art and architecture school, and then Paris. A conservatory-trained pianist, Nelly often accompanied her husband's lectures with carefully selected modernist piano pieces, as well as performing at Salon Dada soirees organised by Theo with Kurt Schwitters in Holland and Germany during 1922/23. Following Theo's premature death in 1931, Nelly established the De Stijl archive.

The pieces on this 76 minute CD are performed by Dutch pianist Peter Beijersbergen van Henegouwen, and include material by Erik Satie, Josef Matthias Hauer, Arnold Schoenberg, Francis Poulenc, Arthur Honegger and Jacob van Domselaer, whose austere Proeven Van Stijlkunst (1913-17) represents the application of Piet Mondriaan's neo-plastic principles to musical composition.

The CD features a deluxe booklet with archive images and detailed historical notes.
