Founded in 2019 at the initiative of composer Elisabeth Angot, Ensemble 44 aims to weave a link between repertoire and contemporary music.
Ensemble 44 develops its progammation around the work of the composers it hosts in residence, and is at the origin of orders and creations of works.
The productions of Ensemble 44 explore the multidisciplinary themes initiated by the Festival Les Rencontres Musicales et Scientifiques, a setting in which they are created each season. Ensemble 44 is committed to reaching out to all audiences and especially to areas with a smaller cultural offer. The anchoring of the ensemble 44 in the territories is realized by the construction of partnerships with the local actors: Conservatories and schools of music, theaters, diffusion structures etc.
