Sunday April 23, 2017, 11.00 hours | Dazzling vocal sounds | Small Hall

This morning concert will be marked by a groundbreaking 31-tone project called Vokalprojekt 31, an ensemble of four vocalists, which brings 31-tone music of the Renaissance and the present time and will be accompanied by the unique Fokker organ, played by our organ player Ere Lievonen. Together they will perform music in the meantone tuning and the 31-tone temperament from the Renaissance/early Baroque and the present day in a fascinating way. On the program the premiere of a new work by Fabio Costa and Andreas Arend. Order tickets at the box office of the Muziekgebouw. Read about the concert here.

Call for scores!
The Huygens-Fokker Foundation is seeking new works for Fokker organ (31-tone organ), composed for performer or for laptop, controlling the instrument through MIDI. A combination of the Fokker organ and the Carrillo-piano is also possible (check the corresponding tones here). Submitted compositions will be evaluated on playability and quality before considering a possible performance during our next Fokker organ concert series.
