Ensemble Modern celebrates its 40th anniversary
Ensemble Modern will celebrate its 40th year of existence in 2020 with an anniversary cycle involving seven projects in a number of different cities. The cycle starts off with concerts in Cologne and Frankfurt on January 6 and 13, respectively.
The “tireless musicians in search of contemporary music” (Frankfurter Neue Presse) will make no exception in their anniversary year when it comes to their broad programmatic scope which will span from small scale chamber music through works for larger ensembles up to orchestral concerts, from dance performances through video projects up to music theatre, from free and structured improvisations through collaborations with artists from jazz, pop and electronic scenes up to the ensemble's own collective creations. The anniversary events highlight aesthetic and historical aspects that have been as formative for the development of Ensemble Modern as they have been for the course of music history.
