For the Coronation of HRH Willem-Alexander Lago/van Merwijk wrote two pieces. The first piece ‘Klein Intermezzo’ was exactly what it says: a small connecting piece in a medley of other compositions. “l’Entrata del Re” was a solution to a problem: when entering the Nieuwe Kerk the King had to make a 2 minute walk. The first minute was to be a brass quintet piece by composer Jurriaan Andriessen: il Concorso della Corona, and van Merwijk took that piece as a departure for his l’Entrata del Re (starts at 0.59 in YouTubeFragment) so that HRH Willem Alexander could make it to the throne accompanied by music. The Coronation was broadcasted world-wide; music performed by the Netherlands Wind Ensemble.
