About the composition
Notenkrakers’ notulen (Nutcrackers’ minutes) is based on the minutes of the public discussion that took place in April 1970 between the so-called ‘Nutcrackers’ and the board of the Concertgebouw Orchestra. The discussion was a result of the infamous 1969 ‘Nutcrackers Action’, when a group of angry young composers disrupted a performance by the Concertgebouw Orchestra in order to demand more democratic involvement and innovation.
