Club Fluxus: Kluster5 – Dutch Focus

Kluster5 is a young ensemble based in The Hague and was ensemble in residence during the Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2017. With its unusual combination of violin, saxophone, percussion, guitar and piano, the quintet produces a unique, modern sound which is particularly evident in new works written especially for the ensemble. The VPRO’s Vrije Geluiden TV programme follows the progress of these musicians keenly on its website. The precise line-up for this concert will be announced later.

Fluxus, which means ‘fluid’ or ‘constantly changing’, is a series in Club Nine organized in collaboration with TivoliVredenburg. This series focuses on young ensembles and musicians and consists of programmes containing a whole lot of new repertoire showcasing the latest developments in contemporary music. Where possible, the composers will be present and will discuss their own work. The small-scale and informal set-up places the audience in very close contact with the performers.
