This evening concert is dedicated to the sovereignty transfer of the Netherlands to Indonesia on 27 December 1949. The main focus will be on the performance of Rituals Bells, Global Gongs by Sinta Wullur.

In roughly 75 minutes, the history of the relations between the Netherlands and Indonesia (the former Dutch East Indies) is lived through in this sizeable composition for vocal soloists, choir and an orchestra consisting of western instruments and gamelan.

The works surrounding it are either through their origin or their use of gamelan techniques or instruments, connected to Indonesia. Between the performances, programmer Leo Samama speaks with composer Sinta Wullur.
