Dutch composer Jan Koetsier was born in Amsterdam in 1911 and commenced his studies in Berlin. He was active as an opera conductor in Germany and made his first appearance as a composer and conductor with the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra in 1937. From 1942 until 1948 he was the orchestra's second conductor. In 1950 he accepted Eugen Jochum’s invitation to become the first conductor of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. He has also conducted the Munich Philharmonic and the Bamberg Symphony. In 1966 Koetsier was appointed professor for the conducting class at the Munich Conservatory. His compositions include three symphonies, chamber music, an opera, an oratorio, and various other compositions The Partila for English Horn and Organ was commissioned in 1954 by a friend of Koetsier's in Munich who specified the English horn as the solo instrument as well as the chorale melody “Wie sch'on leuchtet der Morgenstern“ (“How Lovely Shines the Morningstar“) which is heard in the final movement.

Working with modest-but optimized-recording gear and infinite attention to the niceties of microphone placement, Dave Wilson has captured an amazingly good likeness of a baroque-style tracker Flentrop organ. The instrument itself, I think, is one of the reasons why this recording works so well. - The Absolute Sound
