April 12, 2015 | Ensemble SCALA
Concert Fokker organ | 2015-04-12, 11.00 hours | Small Hall - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam
In the rectangular space of the Small Hall at the top of the Muziekgebouw a special concert with (post)minimal movements and galactic overtone sounds will take place. With a panoramic view over the wide IJ-river, the audience can enjoy the microtones of both Ensemble SCALA and the Fokker organ. A highlight of this concert is the performance of Aleph 2 by the famous minimal composer Terry Riley. Also on the program: the angulated Solar Neon of Ned McGowan, the exciting piece Lhorong of composer Juan Felipe Waller, non-western minimal sounds of Martin Lo-A-Njoe, a serene piece composed by Piet-Jan van Rossum, the organic movements for 31-tone organ of Sander Germanus and, last but not least, a brand new work by the distinct post-minimalist composer Renske Vrolijk. Spectral sounds, tone fluctuations, harmony and clusters with a continuous rhythm alternate in this concert. Performed by Ensemble SCALA, a group of 7 excellent musicians specialized in contemporary and microtonal music.
You can order tickets at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ.
