Dieren, Bernard van

Dieren, Bernard van (b Rotterdam, 1887; d London, 1936). Dutch composer, long resident in Eng. Trained as scientist, but began to write mus. criticism and in 1909 settled in London as correspondent for several European periodicals. His works became the subject of a cult among leading Brit. intellectuals of the 1920s, e.g. Sitwells, Gerald Cooper, Heseltine, Gray, and others. Successive efforts to persuade his contemporary public and later generations of his genius have made little ground, the mus. being less novel than is suggested. Works incl. The Tailor (comic opera) (1917); Symphony on Chinese Themes (with vv.) (1914); Serenade; 6 str. qts.; solo vn. sonata; songs. Wrote book on Epstein (1920) and vol. of criticism, Down Among the Dead Men (1935).
