Ensemble Resonanz

Ensemble Resonanz represents a new generation of musicians: they bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary music and seek to contrast as well as to connect old masters with modern composers. With passion they dedicate themselves to the promotion and development of new string repertoire and up-to-date interpretations of classical works.

Performing as both a chamber orchestra and an ensemble of soloists, the ensemble is well represented in the subscription programs of leading concert halls as Vienna, Salzburg, Paris, Venice, Amsterdam. Beyond that, they are present at a variety of modern music festivals and conduct regular concert tours from India to New York up to Mexico.

From 2013 until 2014 Tabea Zimmermann takes over the position of cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras as Artist in Residence of Ensemble Resonanz. The Ensemble and the violist, as both soloist and musical director, will present a series of concerts.

Other partners of the ensemble include not only renowned soloists and conductors but also media performers, stage directors, actors, and artists. Among them in the last years were Beat Furrer, Fazil Say, Rebecca Saunders, Imre Kertész, Matthias Goerne, Roger Willemsen, Peter Rundel, Helmut Lachenmann, Reinhard Goebel and the RIAS chamber choir.

In 2002 Ensemble Resonanz settled in the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, where it is Ensemble in Residence, and established the highly successful concert series »Resonanzen«. This is the twelfth season that it has enriched the musical life of Hamburg by offering striking contrasts in its programs and combining rare and classical works of former centuries with modern music, newly commissioned works and premiere performances.
