Zahir Ensemble

The Zahir Ensemble came into being in Seville in 2005 as a consequence of a meeting of well-known performers established in that city, to whom are added outstanding international musicians. Since its beginnings it has sought to bring to the stage not just the major works of the twentieth century (many of them little-performed either because of their technical difficulties or because of their particular instrumentation) but also various examples from the current avant-garde. The ensemble’s flexibility enables it to tackle large-scale chamber orchestra scores. Among its activities has been its participation in stage projects such as the Taschenoper Toihaus Festival (Salzburg 2005) at which the Zahir Ensemble gave premières of six contemporary operas from composers including Reinhard Febel and Christian Ofenbauer. The group has also performed at the Eröffnungsfest der Salzburger Festpiele (Salzburg Festival Inaugural Fiesta) in 2005, Seville City Corporation’s Contemporary Music Cycle (2005 and 2006), the Córdoba City Corporation Contemporary Music Cycle (2006), the Contemporary Music Cycle in the Central Theatre in Seville (2007 and 2008), the Granada Contemporary Music Encounter (2007–2009), the Artes no Camiño Festival in Lugo (2008), the University of Music “F. Chopin” in Warsaw (2009), and elsewhere. It was selected by the INAEM in 2008 as one of the ensembles to receive subsidies for the promotion of contemporary music in Spain.
