b Amsterdam 23 July 1825, d Utrecht 14 May 1904. Dutch conductor,
pianist and composer.
Although Hol promoted the works of Berlioz and contemporary
German composers in his concert programmes, his own music remained
conservative. His published works number more than 125 and include
two masses, cantatas, psalms, an oratorio, David (1879), two operas,
Floris V (1892) and Uit de branding (1894), four symphonies, songs
and works for organ and for piano.
