Frensel Wegener, Emmylocked

  • Helen Metzelaar


(b Amsterdam, June 14, 1901; d Laren, Jan 11, 1973). Dutch composer, daughter of Bertha Frensel Wegener-Koopman. She studied the violin with Felice Togni at the Amsterdam Conservatory, graduating in 1925. She then studied composition for three years with Sem Dresden and clarinet with Willem Brohm. She developed multiple sclerosis in the early 1930s, at which point she stopped composing and turned to writing poetry. Both Rosy Wertheim and Anna Mesritz van Velthuysen set her poems to music. She wrote in a dissonant, linearly conceived neo-classical style, and favoured short pieces.
