Asko|Schönberg is the leading ensemble for contemporary classical music. Quality, experimentation, and innovative programming with an eye for topicality are their most important pillars. With a rich network of musicians, conductors, composers, versatile young creators, and partners from various art disciplines, Asko|Schönberg contributes to the future of the performing arts. The ensemble operates all over the world from its Amsterdam home base. Asko|Schönberg plays the best pieces of the great 20th century composers, as well as the very latest 21st century work, with an emphasis on pieces by living composers. The ensemble plays on concert stages, festivals, and in interdisciplinary performances. During previous Cello Biennales, Asko|Schönberg has already played countless premieres and cello concertos that are rarely performed live.
