The Art of 'Nauwluisterendheid'
Concert | Ensemble SCALA | Sunday January 14, 2018 - 11.00 hours

Ensemble SCALA is back this season with a concert full of microtonal sounds. The title of the program is partly derived from the 'Nauwluisterendheid Foundation', founded by Professor Adriaan Fokker in 1960 for 31-tone music, which changed its name to the Huygens-Fokker Foundation in 1967. With the strange term 'nauwluisterendheid' ('narrow-listeningness') Fokker pointed to the small pitches of the 31-tone system that had to be tuned very carefully. But it also referred to the ability to perceive these small intervals while listening to the music. That's an art in itself.  
With the 31-tone organ in the base, it's a task for Ensemble SCALA to perform these microtonal compositions perfectly, so the audience can master the art of 'nauwluisterendheid'. On the program is a brand new work of the well-known Finnish composer Juhani Nuorvala (1961). Nuorvala, who, makes great use of microtones in his music next to his accessible movements, is also a composition teacher at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. In addition, the deferred premiere of Arnold Marinissen (1966) is planned. Marinissen is also known for his love for minimal music and percussive sounds. But whether this can be heard in his new composition for Ensemble SCALA is still to be seen. Besides these two world premieres, the program contains several pieces for smaller instrumentations that will give the entire concert a fresh and varied character.

SCALA's Spectrum

Concert | Ensemble SCALA | Sunday November 29, 2015 - 11.00 hours

During the opening concert of MicroFest Amsterdam 2015, a one-day festival for microtonal music, Ensemble SCALA kicks off with a program full of premieres. New works by Danny de Graan, Eric Verbugt and the German composer Joachim Schneider will frame a few short compositions. Also on the program is a reprise of Scala I by Peter Adriaansz. The wide sound spectrum of Ensemble SCALA, with the Fokker organ as a part of them, will be illuminated during the entire concert and in all its diversity. How do the overtones of a flute or a clarinet sound? Or microtones on a viola or a guitar? All these questions will be answered in a very adventurous and musical way.

Ensemble SCALA is an ensemble for microtonal music in the Netherlands initiated by the Huygens-Fokker Foundation (centre for microtonal music) in 2010. Remarkable is that the unique Fokker organ is part of this ensemble. The musicians are all specialists in the field of contemporary music, who jointly explore the colorful borders of microtonality. Over the past five years, the ensemble has built up a broad repertoire of works by composers from The Netherlands and abroad, composed many different musical styles. With unconventional tunings as focal point, Ensemble SCALA focuses on the growing interest of composers worldwide in microtones as a new way to express themselves artistically.

Notes Between Keys
Concert | Ensemble SCALA | Sunday November 16, 2014 - 11.00 hours

The notes that are in theory 'between the keys of the piano' can certainly be played on the Fokker-organ, the 31-tone guitar and, in particular, on the Carrillo-piano, which counts 96 tones and keys instead of 12 in the octave. During this concert Ensemble SCALA will again perform a lot of these notes by playing exciting compositions. For example, the program includes the premiere of a new composition for ensemble of the Italian composer Lucio Garau, who has written previously an intriguing work for the 31-tone organ and viola da gamba. Besides work of the old master Nicola Vicentino, a composition of the Québec composer François-Gabriel Madden (who composed the piece for the ensemble in 2011) and the Dutch composer Gijsbrecht Roijé will be played.  

One can order tickets at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. Please note that since this season drinks after the concert are not included anymore. At the other hand, the admission to the concert is reduced.

This edition of Dag in de Branding (Festival for new music) devotes special attention to the work of composer Peter Adriaansz. Ensemble SCALA (which includes the Fokker-keyboard) provides the first concert of the day and brings his latest work premiered, entitled Scala I. The simple but intriguing and shiny work of Adriaansz is specially composed for the ensemble, tuned in the 31-tone system. Remarkable is its intelligent use of harmonics. Also on the program works by Nicola Vicentino, Ned McGowan and Steffen Krebber. Tickets can be ordered at the Korzo Theatre in The Hague (Prince Street 42). Unorthodox composer Peter Adriaansz doesn't shy away from experimentation and is always curious about new forms of sounds. He calls his work "audible mathematics". During Dag in de Branding, Korzo presents a concert portrait featuring composer Adriaansz. Microtonal influences are unmistakably present in his more recent works. It's no accident that the Scala Ensemble, specialized in microtonal music will perform the premiere of his Scala I. A number of compositions from his famous vibrating cycle Waves will be performed in a concert given by Ensemble Klang. A special afternoon of music that honours the versatility of this composer.

Photo of the concert  (Dag in de Branding - photo's: Danijel Mihajlovic) 


The study-keyboard of Pels, built in 1963 and belonging to the Fokker-organ, could be restaurated and midificated because of a small contribution by the Olga Heldring Foundation (Fundatie Van den Santheuvel, Sobbe). This modernisation of the 'mute' study-keyboard was of great importance, because of the the fact that the organplayer can practise (with sound!) on this copy of the 31-tone keyboard on any location he wants, whereby the Huygens-Fokker Foundation will be less dependent of the availability of the Small Hall of the Muziekgebouw, where the original 31-tone keyboard has its place.
