Celebration of the birthdays and legacies of two titans of contemporary music

Today Bimhuis and an array of performers celebrate the birthdays and the enduring legacies of two titans of contemporary music: Misha Mengelberg (5 June 1935 – 3 March 2017) and Louis Andriessen (6 June 1939 – 1 July 2021). Both were respected composers and improvisers whose contributions have shaped not just the Dutch soundscape but echoed across the world. They were also good mates and occasional collaborators. Expect an evening of innovation and friendship.

Bask in the surprising sounds of what’s been written and what’s plucked from the air, and relive musical memories in the ever-changing now. Featuring, among others, the mighty ICP Orchestra with Han Bennink, Guus Janssen and Michael Moore, plus Gerard Bouwhuis, Claron McFadden, Kluster5, Tomoko Mukaiyama, Joanna MacGregor, Felicity Provan, Oscar Jan Hoogland, and Benjamin Herman.

Also, discover what’s been going on behind the scenes with the launch of the Louis Andriessen Platform, a brilliant interactive source of information about this iconic composer.
