2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Ensemble NOMAD, and to celebrate this, we are presenting a series of 4 concerts of all-concerto programs with special focus on individual members as soloists. The beauty of ensemble playing is the result of chemistry between instruments (individuals), and each players must polish his skill and tastes for better chemistry. It is no coincidence that NOMAD maintains its special place in the contemporary music scene because the individual members make conscious effort to improve themselves on a daily basis through their own artistic activities. This is a concert series that such 12 members select their own concerto to perform with Ensemble NOMAD, and this will reveal not only what has been achieved in the past 20 years, but also what is possible in the coming future as well.
Formed in 1997, Ensemble NOMAD has been highly acclaimed both nationally and internationally as one of the leading ensembles in the world specializing in the 20th-century and contemporary music, with its unique, infinitely flexible and spontaneous programming in the concerts and high-quality performance. Winner of “KEIZO SAJI Prize 2003” and “The Vienna Philharmonic & Suntory Music Aid Award 2014”, the ensemble has appeared in most major contemporary music festivals around the world. 14 CDs are available worldwide.
