Vrije Geluiden (‘Free Sounds’) transcends all musical genres: from classical and contemporary music to new and existing ensembles, in recent productions and novel compositions, it offers portraits of composers, jazz concerts, and musical rarities. Its broad view extends across cultures, ensuring that non-western music (“World Music”) receives the attention it deserves.
