Bremer Schlagzeugensemble

The Bremer Schlagzeugensemble is composed of actual and former students of Prof. Olaf Tzschoppe. His focus is on the development of the percussion repertoire of the 20th / 21st century as well as the collaboration with young composers. Besides classics by Iannis Xenakis, Toru Takemitsu and Luigi Nono the ensemble played many world and german premiers e.g. transmutations by the Australian composer Anthony Pateras. It presented thematic programs around Iannis Xenakis, György Ligeti and Georg Crumb and participated in multimedial events such as “In Between” (Fashion/Media/Music). It toured european countries and south america. In 2015 the CD “Splash” was released.
