about ensemble chronophonie

ensemble chronophonie was formed in 2001 by recent graduates of the Musikhochschule Freiburg. Having already gathered experience in ensembles such as Ensemble Modern and Ensemble Aventure, ensemble chronophonie aims to provide an alternative to the now conventional new music establishment.

In its short history, the ensemble already looks back on a sizeable number of successful projects which highlight the focus of their work: intimate collaboration with composers whose works often confront musical traditions, consciously stand apart from them, or are on the brink of receiving general recognition; Programme conception which draws attention to "unheard" connections, often beyond the purely acoustical; Recognition of composers who - mistakenly - are rarely performed (such as Erhard Karkoschka or Francisco Guerrero); Confrontation of older, yet in their time breakthrough works, with the newest aesthetic suggestions (Stravinsky - Bernal ; Stockhausen - Grebtschenko ; Varèse - Billian).

ensemble chronophonie was awarded a Grant-in-Aid by the Ernst-von-Siemens Music Foundation and a scholarship of the Kunststiftung (Cultural Foundation) Baden-Württemberg.
