The New European Ensemble was founded in 2008 in the Netherlands by dedicated and passionate musicians from across Europe. The ensemble has built up a national and international reputation for imaginative programming, ‘great enthusiasm’ (Nutida Musik) and ‘excellent performances’ (de Volkskrant). The musicians regularly tour internationally. Some of today’s leading composers like Kaija Saariaho and Magnus Lindberg enjoy working with the group. In 2018 Sofia Gubaidulina will be featured.
