Ensemble Resonanz

In Residence at the Elbphilharmonie
At home in St. Pauli

With its unique enthusiasm and artistic quality, Ensemble Resonanz ranks among the world’s leading chamber orchestras. Their concepts connect classical and contemporary music, and their vivid interpretations create a field of resonance between the music, the audience and the stories that develop around the programmes.

The string ensemble consists of twenty-one members, organised democratically. The musicians work without a permanent conductor, inviting artistic partners on a regular basis instead. Violinist and conductor Riccardo Minasi has been the ensemble’s »principal guest conductor & partner in crime«. Previous close artistic partnerships of the ensemble include the violist Tabea Zimmermann, the violinist Isabelle Faust, the cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras and the conductor Emilio Pomàrico. Scenographer Annette Kurz is the first visual artist who has accompanied the ensemble as artist in residence beginning with the season 22/23. Another driving force of the ensemble’s artistic work is the collaboration with composers and the constant development of new repertoire.
