Mill Valley Philharmonic presents East meets West at the 1889 Paris World’s Fair

The influence of Gamelan music on Western composers – with Gamelan Sekar Jaya’s Bamboo Tingklik Ensemble

In 1889, in Paris, the City of Light, the world came to Paris and Paris became the world, from China to the Americas, from Congo to Russia. At the Java exhibit, the model village (kampong) demonstrated all aspects of communal village life including gamelan music ensembles. French composers Debussy and Ravel encountered gamelan music for the first time and were profoundly inspired and influenced by this music of bells, gongs and drums.

MVP’s program explores the influence of Javanese gamelan music on Western composers Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Béla Bartók and Lou Harrison. MVP welcomes Gamelan Sekar Jaya’s Bamboo Tingklik Ensemble in performance at all three concerts.

All MVP concerts are free, with walk-in seating.  Everyone is welcome.
