    ensemble

    The neophon ensemble is dedicated to realizing acoustic visions of contemporary generations of composers. We are seeking to reinterpret the great tradition of Western art music in the present day.

    Established in 2011 by musicians studying at the HMT Rostock, the ensemble today includes musicians of international backgrounds and is based in Berlin. It consists of 15 soloists representing all of the orchestral instruments, including two pianists, two violinists and one percussionist.
    The musicians actively perform together both in smaller chamber music formations, as well as in the large ensemble setting.

    The ensemble's special focus is to manifest, from the perspective of contemporary creation, how musical ideas are transmitted across the borders of various epochs. For our audience, we wish to open new listening perspectives on older music, and to place younger music in contrast and connection to histories which came before.
