Channa Malkin, Nicolas van Poucke & het Intercontinental Ensemble

A pocket-sized symphony

The Intercontinental Ensemble was founded in Amsterdam in 2012 by four string players and five wind players from countries as far apart as Mexico, Portugal, Czech Republic and The Netherlands. Apart from playing the standard repertoire for nonet, they also create their own arrangements of orchestral music, enabling these 'pocket-sized symphonies' to be heard at locations where a regular sized orchestra doesn't fit. Today they invite soprano Channa Malkin and pianist Nicolas van Poucke to join them in their own version of Schumann's piano concerto and Strauss' orchestral songs. Symphonic works played by ten musicians: more intimate, transparant and flexible than ever before.

The arrangements of the Intercontinental Ensemble were made possible by the Norma Feniks Foundation
