Tembang Sunda by Paul Seelig
During her stay in Holland Indonesian singer Bernadeta Astari became interested in classical music from the Dutch East Indies. In the programm VIRUS 13 December 2012 together with her pianist Kanako Inoue she gave a beautiful performance of Dandang gula miring, the third part of Tembang Sunda, written by Indisch composer Paul Seelig (1876-1945). When Seeligs daugther Clara passed away in the city of The Hague a few years ago, the words of Dandang gula miring were spoken at her funeral.
