After their last performance in Korzo, de Volkskrant praised the New European Ensemble for the high level of their playing. They return together with the Swedish Kroumata Percussion Ensemble for a performance of the masterpiece Le Marteau sans Maître by composer Piere Boulez; a piece for contralto and six instrumentalists inspired by Indonesian gamelan. Kroumata leads the field of percussion ensembles, and is praised for its ‘breathtaking virtuosity’ (The Times) and unparalleled performances. The program includes music by Japanese master composer Toru Takemitsu and a brand new world premiere by the young Canadian composer Graham Flett.
