"Landscape with Ensembles"
The German musical landscape is home to over 150 ensembles specializing in contemporary music. And they are responsible for far more than 95% of the world premieres each year. In a wide variety of formations, mostly with international members, they have long taken on many of the tasks that symphony orchestras performed in the 19th century: making the aesthetic statements of today's composers audible reality. This is only possible through first-class mastery of the respective sound tools and the tireless willingness to embrace the unknown. Performers of contemporary music must also be able to speak, sing,
dance and act. Our ensembles achieve all this and more – far from pecuniary assurances.
