“ Barend Schipper: a poet in music.”
— Sara Rudner, New York, dancer and choreographer, receiver of Bessie Award, worked with the Paris Opera, Mikhail Baryshnikov.
“Barend Schipper's music manifests a world of refined balance, energy and organic coherence. Its vigorous lyricism is both assertive and etherial, its themes playful and poignant, and always physically compelling. This refreshing music echoes the past and mirrors the future.” - James Strecker, Hamilton, Canada
— Poet and author of 20 books, journalist on music and the arts, receiver of the Hamilton Arts Award
