Under the name of ›Studio Musikfabrik‹, the renowned Ensemble Musikfabrik took over the leadership in 2009 of the ›LandesJugendEnsemble‹ (State Youth Ensemble) initiated by the State Council of Music NRW. Known for their work with new music, the core ensemble is made up of 15 young musicians who have either successfully contended in the German national competition ›Jugend Musiziert‹ or already gathered a high level of experience in chamber music with other youth ensembles.
Under the direction of Peter Veale, this exemplary youth ensemble have repeatedly demonstrated their excellence in contemporary music in prominent projects such as the world premiere of Werner Henze’s ›Gisela!‹ in 2010 and international concert tours in South Asia and the United States of America.
