gending

no upcoming shows at the moment

ensemble gending was established in 1989 to perform newly composed music for javanese gamelan.
the gamelan – played since hundreds of years on java and well known for the sonore sound of bronze – has a surprising quality for contemporary composers worldwide.
gending strives to expose the hidden qualities of the gamelan by inviting composers to write for the ensemble – in twenty years, more than fifty new compositions have been written and performed for audiences in the netherlands, indonesia, germany, and spain.
