Gerardus Hubertus Galenus von Brucken Fock was a nineteenth-century classical Dutchpianist who gave up his career as a performer to compose and paint. Constantly torn between art and church, he traveled much in Europe, later establishing himself in Amsterdan. Married to the daughter of a member of the Zeeland parliament, he joined the Salvation Army and traveled from place to place in France, preaching and playing organ. He was also considered a very good draftsman and watercolorist whose works often inspired his own musical pieces. His orchestral works frequently lean towards French Impressionists like Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
