Instant Composers Pool celebrates its 50th anniversary with a weekend full of concerts at the Bimhuis, welcoming many special guests. Drummer Han Bennink, a leading figure of the improvisational group since its foundation, will celebrate his 75th birthday along with the anniversary. As always, an important share of the repertory will consist of the compositions of former ICP pianist Misha Mengelberg, who passed away on March 3, 2017.
On Saturday night many different guests will appear, including guitarist Terrie Ex and reedist Joris Roelofs. ICP drummer Han Bennink will perform with his steady trio. Saxophonist Candy Dulfer and young singer/keyboardist Camilo Rodriguez will form a unique group with the rhythm section of the ICP Orchestra.
Since its foundation in 1967 the Instant Composers Pool has been an influential platform for improvised music. It was co-founded by pianist Misha Mengelberg, drummer Han Bennink and reedist Willem Breuker. It has developed into the ICP Orchestra, a unique cross between a big band and a chamber orchestra in which brass and string players improvise on the cutting edge. The orchestra connects American swing to European music and singular improvisations. ‘They are brilliant soloists, scholars and physical comedians, critics and joy-spreaders’ (New York Times).
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 til 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
Ticket: € 20 seating / € 17 standing
