Saxophone player and winner of the Buma Boy Edgar Prize, Jasper Blom gives an accessible performance of Peter Schat’s Toonklok

In the concert series Polyphony, saxophone player Jasper Blom and his quartet manage to make polyphonous medieval music accessible to a wider audience. For the third installment, the Jasper Blom Quartet share the stage with German pianist Pablo Held. The performance will be based on the work De Toonklok by Dutch composer Peter Schat: a musical system that lets composers break free from what Schat once called the ‘problem of tonality’. 
While this might sound like advanced musicology, the Jasper Blom Quartet manages to use this complex material to captivate the audience. No wonder, then, that this performance won them the Buma Boy Edgar Prize.  

This concert has been moved from May 20, 2021 to November 4, 2021.
