About the album

The Percussion Group The Hague was founded in 1977 by four percussion students from the Royal Conservatory of The Hogue. The group now comprises six percussionists on regular basis, and can be extended when the need arises. Over the years the group has obtained an important place in the musical world of Europe with a repertory that includes nearly the entire literature of Western compositions for percussion, extending from the first pieces for percussion from the beginning of the 20th century to the great percussion sextets of Xenakls. A great many works have been written specially for them by composers such as Elliott Carter, Mauricio Kagel, Theo Loevendie, Steve Reich and John Cage. Their close collaboration wit Karlheinz Stockhausen resulted in a series of performances with the Percussion Group The Hague of Stockhausen's opera "Samstag aus Licht" in the Teatro alla Scala in Milano. The group is also seriously engaged in African traditional music and frequently work with African masters such as Ali N'Diaye Rose, Abraham Kobenah Adzenyah and Venancio Mbande.
