Profile

In General

➣ Egbert studied Composition with Gareth Green and holds, amongst a range of other qualifications, diplomas in Composition from the London College of Music & Victoria College of Music and Drama, London.

➣ To date, Egbert's Catalogue / List of Works totals 47 Opus numbers comprising 60 works, and is steadily growing.

➣ As a thinker, Egbert often has a Reason, Theory or Philosophy behind the music he makes, which also applies to the music he writes. E.g. the Passacaglia in G minor, Opus 17 is a work where each Variation ‘represents’ a thought about music. It is a work where Philosophy meets Music.

Style

➣ As a composer, Egbert often identifies himself as a Neoclassical composer, as he strongly recognizes -and identifies with- some of the 'traits' of Neoclassism in music, such as order, balance, clarity, perceptible thematic processes and emotional restraint.

➣ Egbert seeks to write rich harmonies, and expands harmonies at certain points, but there is always a clear sense of tonality.
