Ensemble Klang

Profile

Ensemble Klang is one of the most exciting ensembles in Dutch contemporary music today, with what is by now an impressive repertoire of works written especially for them. The combination of saxophones, trombone, keyboards, percussion and guitar enables them to make a distinctive yet versatile sound ranging from fragile and intimate to the driving force behind a big band. The ensemble performs without a conductor; a typical Ensemble Klang programme combines complex music that demands virtuoso precision, with a breathtaking level of musical risk. All of the ensemble’s members enjoy working together and do so regularly: virtually every season sees the ensemble working on musical theater, site-specific and dance projects. ‘Klang members’ feel equally at home in the concert hall, in the open air at a festival or in a pop venue.
