Nov. 27, 2022 | Gregory Oakes, Ned McGowan & Ere Lievonen (Fokker-orgel)

Concert Fokker organ | 2022-11-27, 11.00 hours | Small Hall - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam

Featuring the Quarter-tone Extended Clarinet!

The American virtuoso and energetic clarinetist Gregory Oakes presents his new 'quarter-tone extended clarinet', which was recently made especially for him. The polymicrotonal sounds that will arise between his quarter-tone clarinet and the fifth tones of the Fokker organ form the basis of this extraordinary concert. Together with Fokker organist Ere Lievonen and composer/flutist Ned McGowan, he plays a thunderous program that does not shy away from experimenting. The program includes works by Ned McGowan, Bill Alves, Stirling Rutty, Sebastian Dumitrescu and Miika Hyytiäinen.

You can order tickets at the box office of the Muziekgebouw.
