The New European Ensemble is one of today’s most innovative, lively and versatile ensembles for new music. The national and international press sing their praises, citing their “infectious enthusiasm” (Nutida Musik), and “outstanding performances” (de Volkskrant).
In recent years, the Nutshuis garden has proved to be the ultimate setting for a relaxing afternoon listening to these impassioned concerts. The New European Ensemble is comfortable with all genres and styles of music; from exciting Spanish music for flute and guitar and the haunting sounds of the woodwind quintet, to scintillating percussion concerts.
On what will hopefully be a warm last day of August, icy landscapes will come alive in the Nutsgarden. The high north are centralized in the work ‘4 brass links’ that Dutch-Swedish composer Klas Torstensson created as part of his grand cycle Lantern Lectures. Ryan Linham (trumpet) and Jaume Gavilan (trombone) mix it up performing this piece together with the humorous sonate of Francis Poulence, and a work of one of the most famous movie composers: Ennio Morricone. The work of Ryan Linham himself deserves special attention as he was inspired by the Nutsgarden and its surrounding.
