Gaudeamus is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and in all those years the bass clarinet has been a prominent instrument. For example, bass clarinetist Harry Sparnaay was the 9th musician to win the Gaudeamus Interpreters Concours. This programme is an ode to new music from now and then.
The program percurssie(ff) is all about the combination of bass clarinet and percussion. It contains new compositions by percussionist and composer Ruud Roelofsen, music composed and performed by the young Israeli Naama Reuven and music by master students of Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.
