Ter promotie van haar onlangs verschenen album Bend Like Steel was Lori Lieberman een aantal weken geleden in ons land. Voor Lori was dit tevens een uitgelezen kans om voor het eerst in 40 jaar haar oude vriend Henny Vrienten weer eens te ontmoeten.

‘In 1975 I came to the Netherlands to do a series of concerts and performed at theaters throughout the country.  On that tour, I met Henny Vrienten, with whom I established a brief but close friendship. I remember visiting him at his home in Tilburg, and though we promised to stay in touch, life’s distractions got in the way, and we lost touch. For myself, I went on to record LPs to CDs (and most recently, back to vinyl—ahh, the roundness of things!), raised two sons and a daughter, and V2 Records, Benelux, has just released my fourteenth CD, Bend Like Steel.

Throughout the years, I thought of Henny often. Of course I had become aware of his daunting success with the band, Doe Maar, but mostly it was his compositions for film, his award winning music for the musical, “Petticoat”, coupled with his unbelievable knowledge of classical music, arranging for the orchestra, that made me want to reconnect with him so much. A few weeks ago, nearly forty years later, thatwish became a reality, when I once again, spent time with my old friend’. – Lori Lieberman
