The young and fresh Kluster5 was ensemble in residence at Gaudeamus in 2017. The line-up of violin, saxophone, guitar, piano and percussion makes them a unique exponent of the The Hague school. The quintet works closely with young composers to come to new creations and they like to present known music in wilful new arrangements.

All these elements come together in tonight’s programme. From an arrangement by Louis Andriessen – one of the first Dutch winners of the Gaudeamus Award in 1959 – to Aart Strootman, the youngest Dutch winner from 2017 with his piece Shambling Emerge. Next to that, a quartet of young composers from The Hague: Celia Swart and Alex Kordzaia, of whom two parts will be played from Kluster5’s new programme Perceived Reality, a rugged piece by Sebastiano Evangelista and a very recent piece by Amarante Nat.

Before and after this concert by Kluster5, which takes place both physically in TivoliVredenburg and online, there is the Saturday Night Online, a digital programme hosted by Bec Plexus and No Compliments.
