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 eighteen members, organised democratically. The musicians work without a permanent conductor, inviting artistic partners on a regular basis instead. Riccardo Minasi (violinist, conductor and a long-standing friend of the ensemble) has been the ensemble’s »principal guest conductor & partner in crime« – a cooperation that has resulted in numerous CD recordings. 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. Another driving force of the ensemble’s artistic work is the collaboration with composers and the constant development of new repertoire.
