contemporary music from North Rhine-Westphalia
The Ensemble Stationen NRW came into life in 2014 by a project of the Landesmusikrat NRW called „Stationen II“.
Ten highly skilled musicians who have been selected by associations for contemporary music all over NRW, came together to form this ensemble and went on a tournee through ten cities.
By the unique instrumentation a specialised repertoire was mandatory. Composers like Mittmann, Banasik, Gahn and Schultheiß wrote new pieces. On top of that improvisation concepts are a main pillar of the repertoire.
