The 16th edition of the ECCO concert will take place on 2nd February 2021 as an online streaming event and will feature the works of six composers. ECSA will announce where to watch the concert in due time.
Three pieces were selected by chair Dušan Bavdek (Slovenia), Jana Andreevska (North Macedonia), Irina Hasnas (Romania), and Olli Virtaperko (Finland), as well as by a member of the ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag, Fedor Teunisse (Netherlands). The remaining three pieces were selected by the audience through a public voting process.
Below the list of the composers and the respective pieces which will be performed:
Age Veeroos – Ma olen suur kuu su silmapiiril
Davor Branimir Vincze – Na crti crta
Katharina Roth – Gute Reise!
Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard – Sound x Sound
Petra Strahovnik – BETWEEN EAST AND WEST for four percussionists

Hailing from The Hague, Slagwerk Den Haag has been a leader in performing both familiar and lesser-known percussion pieces, in the Netherlands and abroad, since 1977. With a repertoire comprising hundreds of works from all over the world and collaborations with partners from various disciplines, the ensemble tests the possibilities of ordered sound and new instruments.
