The Amsterdam Score Collective conducted by Ed Spanjaard will perform works by Jos Kunst, Theo Loevendie and Tristan Keuris e.o. at the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ on January 18th…
A concert with Dutch music from the period between 1965 and 1980, a time in which the famous ensemble culture emerged. In 1980, Joël Bons, together with Score Collective conductor Ed Spanjaard, founded the Nieuw Ensemble, with which they built on Dutch ensemble music over many years. Bons was part of the birth of Score Collective and writes a new work especially for this concert.
Jos Kunst’s composition Insects gives the name to this program. The diversity and industry and sometimes the stubbornness of this class of arthropods symbolize the activity and productivity of the Dutch composers. In addition to Tristan Keuris‘ rarely performed work, one can enjoy the beautiful Six Turkish Folk Songs of Theo Loevendie. And also a brand new work by the youngest generation of composers.
