Wim Mertens is a Flemish Belgian minimalist classical composer whose style employs mesmerizing minimalist techniques with a sense of the romantic that appeals to both serious music aficionados and more mainstream listeners.

He has composed many pieces in different formats, from short, accessible songs or Lieder to magnanimous and complex three and four parts cycles, and for different settings: from piano solo to chamber music ensembles and symphonic orchestra. He has released more than 60 albums and his new studio album, Charaktersketch, was released in April 2015.
