The carillon of the Dom Tower is the sound of Utrecht. Thanks to the creative city carillonneur Malgosia Fiebig, who likes to respond to current events, different music can be heard coming from the tower almost every week. During Gaudeamus Fiebig and Gijsbert Kok, city carillonneur from The Hague, traditionally play new music by living composers.
The programme this time includes a piece that Geert D’hollander wrote for the 700th anniversary of the Dom Tower, a piece about the pandemic written by Elżbieta Sikora for St. Catherine’s Church in Gdansk, a brand-new, hypnotic piece by Renán Zelada and music by Yota Morimoto and Roel van Oosten. The carillon concert can be heard throughout Utrecht on Saturday mornings, but the best place to listen is the Buurkerkhof, the square behind the Speelklok Museum.
