According to the Internet source given below, Henk van der Vliet is a Dutch composer born in Rotterdam. He received his musical education and accordion lessons at the Toonkunstmuziekschool. His first experimental compositions were presented to the managing director of the music school, Willem Pijper, who advised him to specialise in music. After consulting Willem Pijper he chose the flute as his instrument and studied at the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music Jan van Dijk being his most influential teacher. After his graduation he studied flute with Johan Feltkamp in Amsterdam.
He emigrated to Canada in 1953, where he played in an army band until he returned to The Netherlands in 1956. From 1965 onwards he started composing on a regular basis. Breda City commissioned him to compose Vijf studies for orchestra in 1974 which were then published in 1975. Sonatine for flute and piano, and Passacaglia for piano were published in the same year. The Dutch Choral Societies commissioned him in 1981 to write Beestenboel, for youth choir and ensemble. The Concerto for wind band, xylophone and 2 pianos was commissioned by the "Stichting ter bevordering van de Brabantse scheppende toonkunst" (Foundation for the creation of music in Brabant). Some of his works are published by Donemus (MuziekGroep Nederland).
