Andriessen started rather late as a composer of orchestral music. His Symphony No. 1 was completed in 1930 and premiered on October 1st of the same year by the Haarlemsche Orkest-Vereenigung led by van Beinum. 2 years later Andriessen himself performed the symphony with the same orchestra. The movements are closely interrelated thematically, and finish with a powerful finale.
