Klenengan: A Gamelan Gathering (CU Music)

Saturday, March 18, 2023 at 8:00pm

Lincoln Hall, B20
Dept of Music, 101 Lincoln Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-4101, USA

Leading gamelan musicians in the US join the Cornell Gamelan Ensemble for a klenengan, a long and relatively informal gathering that best accommodates the temporal expansiveness of Javanese gamelan music. Audience members are free to come and go, to enjoy snacks, and even to chat quietly with one another. The relaxed atmosphere fosters a mood in which focused concentration is tempered by an equal sense of calm and comfort. The musicians will begin playing at 4pm, taking a break for dinner around 7pm before resuming at the advertised start time of 8pm, and continuing until at least 10pm. Dedicated to the memory of two masters, Ki Saguh Hadi Raharjo and Nyi Panut, this klenengan is directed by their son, Darsono Hadiraharjo.
