Founded in Strasbourg in 1998 by pianist-conductor Jean-Philippe Wirtz, Ensemble Linea is committed to democratizing contemporary music. The ensemble’s projects cover diverse aesthetic perspectives, from musical theater to electronic music and from Western European music to Asian and American repertoire. Regularly including dance, theater, and cinema in its performances, the ensemble has earned a reputation for dynamic staging. As Institute for New Music visiting artists, Ensemble Linea members will work with composition students, coach performance students in contemporary music, and play two concerts, of which this is the first.
