BIOGRAPHY

Ensemble PHACE is one of the most renowned ensembles in the country. Founded in 1991 by composer and conductor Simeon Pironkoff (then still as ensemble on_line) the ensemble courageously tackles both complex pieces and innovative ways of playing and, in the process, moves effortlessly through a variety of styles and disciplines. The focus is on contemporary chamber music and compositions from the classical avant-garde; on music theatre and adventurous interdisciplinary productions that border on dance, theatre, DJ culture, and visual arts. Ensemble PHACE is successful at identifying subtle nuances, but also in devoting itself to the full force of sound. The audience is encouraged to increase its awareness. Projects like “rent a musician” are proof of the ensemble’s fearlessness and of its openness to adventurous arrangements.
