Ensemble Montage | Classic Surround
Encircled by classical music
Professional classical musicians in the intimate setting of a shipping container. For the fourth year running, Ensemble Montage has assembled a challenging ‘classical’ programme for Noorderzon. The 2016 hit formula Brahms Surround is back, with the audience literally surrounded by the six string musicians of Ensemble Montage. In addition there will be an ode to female composers, and of course a musical children’s performance for young listeners.
The Ensemble Montage musicians are freelancers who work for orchestras such as the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest and London Symphony Orchestra. It all goes to show that classical music is of course for everyone. So they want to conquer even more audiences than just those found in the usual concert venues. In search of an adventurous audience, they love playing where classical music isn’t often played. They will be playing in various combinations, all of them marked by their high quality.
