Oorkaan Ensemble

The Netherlands
The Amsterdam-based Oorkaan Ensemble brings an explosion of colour and vibrant musical flair to the stage thanks to their unique instrument combination of harp, bass clarinet, bayan and percussion.
The Oorkaan Ensemble brings an explosion of color and theatricality with its unique lineup of harp (Michela Zanoni), (bass)clarinet (Michele Mazzini), bayan (Robbrecht Van Cauwenberghe) and percussion (Veysel Dzhesur). The musicians create exciting arrangements of classical masterpieces from Vivaldi to Schönberg and play work composed for them by a.o. Martijn Padding and Emre Sihan Kaleli. In their staged concerts Whoop Whoop(s)! and Gong and the Four Noses they reflect on Turkish and Indonesian classical music, featured in their debut album Shimmering. Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant: “The colors burst from their very first recording! Sliding, scraping, drumming and clapping, they create fascinating sound mixtures.” They play works from this album in the showcase. The Oorkaan Ensemble (since 2021) performs in major concert halls, incl. Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Konzerthaus Wien, Bozar, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Philharmonie Luxembourg, and in September 2024 in Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
