Description:
The daily Gooi en Eemlander of December 19, 1938, published a review of a concert at Hugo Godron's home. At this concert, a string trio by one of “Godron's advanced composition students,” Dick Kattenburg, had been performed for the first time and according to the critic it was: “A fairly compact piece showing remarkable mastery and a very personal style; looking forward with great interest to his further development.” The manuscript survived the war and ended up with Dick’s sister Daisy, who survived in hiding. Dick’s niece Joyce Bergman-van Hessen brought her uncle’s music to the attention of Eleonore Pameijer and the Leo Smit Foundation. A remarkable ink and watercolor drawing adorns the cover page, dated 1938 and depicting the three musicians at the Godron house concert: right Dick Kattenburg, center Theo Kroeze and left cellist Anton Dresden, who later became conductor of Toonkunst Bussum Choir and Orchestra. In the manuscript, the original signature ‘Dick Kattenburg is replaced by ‘Van Assendelft Van Wijck’, a pseudonym used by Kattenburg in the war years. In the late 1930s, there actually lived a Jacob Cornelis van Assendelft van Wijck in Amsterdam, a modest chimney sweep with a fancy name. It is not known whether there was a connection between him and the Kattenburg family.
Dick Kattenburg was arrested end of April, early May 1944, possibly during a raid in a movie theater. From transit camp Westerbork, he was deported to Auschwitz on 19 May 1944. According to his death certificate, he died ‘somewhere in Central Europe’ on 30 September that same year.
