This paper discusses a selection of Louis Andriessen's works for chamber winds, originally written for Orkest de Volharding. These works provide a clear example of his major compositional traits, including the influence of Bach, Stravinsky, minimalism, and jazz. The works discussed include On Jimmy Yancey (1973), De Stijl (1984-5), M is for Man, Music, Mozart (1991), and Passeggiata in Tram in America e Ritorno (1998). Discussions with Andriessen and musicians regarding these works are also included.
