Blom Music Management

About us

My name is Rienk Blom

Before working as a manager I studied organ, singing and church music at HKU University of the Arts. After my study I worked as a host for the Dutch classical radio. Our morning show was very succesful. After 7 years I decided to leave the radio world and to focus on my music management company.

Since 2017 I started my company. During the corona crisis there was enough time to think about my plans. I decided to focus entirely on composers. My interest for new music started already when I was a boy. New music has always fascinated me, ever since I was young. As a teenager, I listened to Messiaen, Ligeti and others.

How would I put my value in a nutshell? I help composers who want to sell their work by taking over the risk of rejection and by increasing their status and income.

How do I do that? My main tasks are:

  • Fine-tuning and advising on the direction to take.
  • Networking
  • Promotion
  • Sales
  • Contract management
  • Negotiating

My approach is calm, controlled, thoughtful and professional. Customer intimacy is my hallmark.

Are you a composer and write for orchestras/ensembles/opera? I’m open to talking about it.

Until so far I secured commissions with Asko Schoenberg, Dutch Radio Phil, Concertgebouw Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Helsinki Radio Phil, BBC Radio Phil, BBC Proms, BBC Scottish, Oulu Sinfonia, Lahti Sinfonia, Oulu Theatre, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra and many others.
