Koetsier composed much chamber music, 3 symphonies, a ballet (Demeter),
an oratorium (Der Mann Lot) and an opera about the painter Frans Hals.
He was influenced by Paul Hindemith.
Jan Koetsier grew up in Berlin, where he also studied music (piano, composition, conducting).
Because of difficulties with the German regime (he was "unwanted foreigner") he returned to The Netherlanmds in 1940.
He became art director of the Chamber Opera of The Hague.
In 1942 Koetsier was appointed second conductor, under Willem Mengelberg, of the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.
Conductor Eugen Jochem brought him to Germany in 1950, where he conducted the Orchestra of the Bavarian broadcasting company till 1966.
From 1966 till 1976 he was professor for orchestra direction.
He is seen as one of the founders of brass chamber music, which led to the "foundation for brass chamber music" in 1993 at the "Hochschule für Musik und Theater München".
