The Xenakis Ensemble is a Dutch ensemble dedicated to the performance of contemporary classical music. Based in Middelburg, it is known as one of the few ensembles specializing in the works of the composer Iannis Xenakis (YAWN-iss zen-KNOCK-kiss). Many Xenakis titles in A library. 3 long (20mins) and 1 short (3:30).

Opens with a Xenakis composition featuring the signature sound of percussionn and horn blasts alternating with horror string glissandos.
Track 2 William Breuker – harpsichord and chamber orchestra with lots of percussion.
Track 3 David Del Puerto exploratory marimba concerto, a real treat for marimbologists.
Track 4 Xenakis – shorter Xenakis piece, not so terrifying. Enjoyable, maybe.
