POSTPONED – Club Fluxus: Oerknal

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Due to the safety measures around the Covid-19 virus, this concert is postponed to a yet to be determined later date.

Last year’s Gaudeamus Muziekweek featured the premiere of Richard Ayres’ The Garden. This year sees a concert containing a sequel in the form of a brand-new concerto written by Ayres, performed by the young ensemble Oerknal with violinist Joseph Puglia.

Puglia is curator-in-residence for this season at Oerknal and this programme too was selected by him. It’s an exploration of the phenomenon of virtuosity in all its guises, in works by Bach, Broekman, Ayres and Tenney. There is also music by students of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, which was the result of a workshop with Puglia and Oerknal: a 20-minute suite, existing of 10 pieces of 2 minutes, each not allowed to consist of more than 100 notes.

Fluxus, which means ‘fluid’ or ‘constantly changing’, is a series in Club Nine. This series focuses on composers, young ensembles and musicians who together showcase 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.
