The Bremen Schlagzeugensemble was founded by Olaf Tzschoppe and is dedicated to working closely with composers. It played many world premieres and German premieres. Many compositions were created as part of the Schlag>|<Art project initiated by the ensemble, which is based on a previously determined quartet set up.
In addition, it is also dedicated to the classics by, among others, Toru Takemitsu and Luigi Nono, presented thematic programs around Iannis Xenakis, György Ligeti and Georg Crumb, worked with video Artists (e.g. Jean-François Guiton) and participated in multimedia events such as “in Between” (fashion / music / design). It undertook concert tours to other European countries and to South America.
As an ensemble in residence of various youth composition classes, it also participated in educational projects and gave workshops and courses.
Musicians: Hsin Lee, Kagan Soylerkaya, Shi Yi and Olaf Tzschoppe
