Founded in 1998, Ensemble
Barcelona Nova Música is an
original, international and intercultural new music group based in Barcelona.
The members have in common their interest and
experience in many styles of music from many cultures. In one moment it can be an
avantgarde jazz/rock group to turn in the next moment into a very precise classical new
music ensemble or even authentique barroque ensemble.
The group likes to work closely
with interested composers from all parts of the world. Most of the pieces of the
group's repertoire are especially composed or arranged.
composers wrote for the group: Gabriel Brncic, Albert Sardà, Albert
Llanas, Augustín Charles, Xavier Benguerel, Anna Cazurra, Jesús Rodroguez Picó, Jesus
Torres, José Iges, Wiek Hijmans, Chiel Meyering, Peter Bacchus, Marcela Pavía, Sergio Fidemraizer, Domenec de la Rubia and Christiaan de Jong.
The group worked with the
following invited musicians: Max Sunyer, Wiek Hijmans, Luc Houtkamp, Robert Dick,
Theo Loevendie, Néstor Eidler, Eric Rynes, Ralph van Raat, Ananda Sukarlan, Peter Bacchus, Harry Sparnaay,
Franck Vigroux, Wu Wei and Eric Vloeimans.
