THE ENSEMBLE

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.
