Brussels – February 2015

Sturm and Klang Ensemble

 

Sturm und Klang Ensemble, conducted by its artistic director Thomas van Haeperen, performed five different pieces from European composers: Mihailo Trandafilovski (Macedonia), Mate Balogh (Hungary), Lynne Plowman (UK), Pertti Jalava (Finland), Jean-Luc Fafchamps (Belgium).

Referring to the pre-romantic notion of Sturm und Drang, a movement conducted by youth who had ideals such as freedom, passion and the emancipation of the individual, Sturm und Klang (“Storm and Sound”), possess energy, ardour and enthusiasm as their major assets.It is in this spirit that the musicians of the orchestra, established in 2000 by Thomas Van Haeperen, share a momentum and a commitment to projects that claim their dynamism, their sensibility and their creativity.

Depending on the repertoire, Sturm und Klang either comes together as the Sturm und Klang Orchestra,or in a smaller formation as the Sturm und Klang Ensemble.
