AsianArt Ensemble (Berlin)

The AsianArt Ensemble was initiated in 2007, and formed in its present structure in 2009. In 2012 it won the prize of the German record critics (“Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik”) for its first CD “asian art ensemble”, published by Celestial Harmonies. With its unique combination of instruments and the music it performs, the AsianArt Ensemble has established an important role in the music world. With instruments from China, Japan and Korea combined with Western strings, AsianArt Ensemble opens up new avenues within contemporary music beyond the common styles of New Music or so-called World Music.
