Cooperation between young musicians and composers from Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Russia

For over 15 years, the ensemble recherche has collaborated with the art and cultural scenes and institutions of higher education to establish new international cooperative ventures. Its efforts to develop new networks for musicians and composers from eastern Europe beyond the borders of the European Union are not motivated by the possibility of performing more concerts, but rather the opportunity to create new constellations through international exchange. To achieve this goal, the ensemble has organized a series of seminars, instrumental courses, lectures, productions of world premieres, and concerts of 20th and 21st-century music performed by young musicians in Tiflis, Kiev, Charkiw, Moscow and Freiburg im Breisgau, the home of the ensemble recherche. With its top-class international musicians, this chamber ensemble has gained an outstanding reputation around the world for its commitment to performing and promoting New Music.
