Ensemble Phoenix Basel


Since 2000 Maurizio Grandinetti is an active member of Ensemble Phoenix Basel. Dozens of new works have been premiered and performed worldwide.

This highly versatile orchestra for contemporary music had a significant impact on the cultural scene of its home city.
Today, it is one of the most important groups of its kind in Switzerland and has also gained an international reputation.
The number of musicians onstage can range from two to almost thirty, making the ensemble ideally suited for performing the works of contemporary composers.

This might be fairly common practice in companies these days, but what gives the Ensemble Phoenix Basel its unique edge is how it incorporates, and is driven by, the impulses and preferences of its individual members.
