The Amsterdam Percussion Ensemble (APE) consists of 4 percussionists of different nations: the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Taiwan and Spain. Next to playing traditional percussion repertoire, the ensemble promotes new compositions and collaborations with other musicians and artists. Through their sensitive interpretation of older works and a fresh approach to new music, they give the music a unique flavour that exceeds the traditional compass of percussion music. All 4 musicians are prize winners of various competitions. Their ambitions and outstanding musicality promises extraordinary concert experiences. The world of percussion instruments is the vastest of all instrument families and with the addition of new materials, everyday objects and electronics, the Amsterdam Percussion Ensemble aims to create a variety that transcends the concept of traditional performances.
