Bremer Schlagzeugensemble

The Bremen Schlagzeugensemble under the direction of Olaf Tzschoppe has his focus on the development of the percussion repertoire of the 20th/21st century as well as the collaboration with young composers. In addition to classics by Iannis Xenakis, Toru Takemitsu, Luigi Nono and others, the ensemble has performed numerous world and German premieres like Transmutations from Australian composer Anthony Pateras. It presented thematic programmes around Iannis Xenakis, György Ligeti and Georg Crumb and took part in multimedia events such as „In Between“ (fashion/media/music). In addition it has undertaken concert tours to other European countries and to South America.
