Cambridge Gamelan Group & members of Southbank Gamelan Players @ The King’s College Chapel

gamelan-piecesThe King’s College Chapel Cambridge 17th June 10pm

Hear the wonderfully rich and resonant tones of the Javanese gamelan – an orchestra of almost a hundred bronze gongs and metallophones from Indonesia which, in the wonderful acoustic of King’s College Chapel, is sure to sound mesmerising.

This is a diverse programme that celebrates a rich, living tradition: classical music from the royal courts of Java is heard alongside 20th Century Javanese compositions and the world première of Cathedral Grove for bass flute and gamelan, composed by Cambridge-based composer and master gamelan musician, Robert Campion.

For this very special concert the Cambridge Gamelan Group will be joined by members of Southbank Gamelan Players, Ensemble-in-Residence at London’s Southbank Centre.
