Notes and Editorial Reviews

Founded in early 1986, Ensemble Aventure is one of the most important ensembles for new music in Europe. Its renowned Freiburg concert series has featured hundreds of premieres as well as important modernistic works of the past. The ensemble has released about 20 CDs introducing listeners to the adventure of new music. The album Octandre takes its name from the classic 1923 work by Edgard Varese. The rest of the music, written in the 90s and highly imaginative, is by composers whose names are less familiar to average concert goers, unless they attend Ensemble Aventure concerts.
