Born 1906 in Utrecht, Bertus van Lier studied cello with Ferrée and Orobio de Castro and composition with Willem Pijper at the Amsterdam Academy of Music. He continued his studies with the German composer Hermann Scherchen in Strassbourg.
Van Lier taught at the Music Academies of Utrecht, Rotterdam and Amsterdam and reviewed concerts for the Dutch daily “Het Parool” (selected reviews were later published in a book). After completing his doctorate with the highest honors in 1964 at the Groningen University, he was appointed as lecturer at this university 1966. He died in 1972, at the age of 65, in Roden near Groningen.
(contribution by Gidon J. Berman <firstname.lastname@example.org>)
Hans van Lier <email@example.com> comments: In Gidon Berman’s “Life” of my father, Bertus van Lier, I find the following text: “After completing his doctorate with the highest honors in 1964 at the Groningen University, he was appointed as lecturer at this university 1966.” This assertion is not correct. Simply: Bertus van Lier was awarded a honorary doctorate (Dr. h.c. or Doctor honoris causa) by the Groningen University in 1964.
