"Irony is a calculated and artistically mastered incongruity between the meaning of the story told, and the manner of telling it" (Erich Heller)

“Dan is a composer with a unique and interesting voice. He is a pleasure to work with, demonstrating flexibility and excellent attention to detail. I have enjoyed performing and recording his works.” (Carla Rees, flutist and rarescale Artistic Director)


"Dan continues to challenge both performers and listeners with intriguing music that defies immediate categorisation and demands to be listened to." (Stuart Russell, Composer)


“There are over 650 pieces written for me but still I´m as happy as a child when I receive a new lovely piece, well written for my instrument. And that feeling I always had when I got the bass clarinet pieces by Dan. Always exciting, really well written for our beautiful instrument. His pieces are a real acquisition to the bass clarinet repertoire.” (Harry Sparnaay, Bass Clarinet Legend)
