Basel Sinfonietta

The basel sinfonietta was founded in 1980 by a group of young musicians with the goal of bringing exciting new combinations of contemporary music and works both familiar and unknown to an audience enthusiastic for unusual sounds and open to experimentation. With its unconventional, provocative approach, this large symphony orchestra has achieved a considerable international reputation. In its relatively short history, the basel sinfonietta has also carried out numerous performances with dancers, jazz musicians, cabarettists and choral groups in addition to complex projects incorporating, for instance, silent movies and multimedia. The basel sinfonietta works frequently with renowned conductors, and has participated in many education projects to attract a young audience for classical music. When not taking part in the orchestra the players perform as freelance musicians in numerous ensembles and chamber music groups. The group manages itself, which gives its members a high degree of self-determination both in artistic and organisational matters. This in turn demands intensive interaction, which leads to a lively, fresh atmosphere in the orchestra . The basel sinfonietta is the only Swiss orchestra to have been invited four times to participate in the famous Austrian Salzburger Festspiele.
