As a large chamber ensemble (string quintet, wind quintet and piano), MIN Ensemble performs music that is only rarely heard by today’s concert audiences. The ensemble also tours with various arrangements and programmes. Its repertoire is dynamic and broad, ranging from early through to contemporary music.
Since its foundation in 1992, the ensemble has been enthusiastically received by audiences and critics both at home and abroad. In 2000 MIN Ensemble took part in the prestigious Palaces of St Petersburg festival. In 2002 the ensemble undertook a highly successful tour of the Czech Republic and also visited Germany (Sächsish Böhmisches Musik Festival). In 2003 MIN Ensemble was one of the principal performers at the Nordic Komponistmøte Nordkalotten (North Calotte Composers Convention).
MIN Ensemble’s previous CD Party Music consists of contemporary music, and received great critical acclaim in the national radio and newspapers in Norway. Their first CD was recorded for the globally distributed label Marco Polo. The ensemble’s other CD production, Arctic Contrasts, was released in 2000.
MIN Ensemble is part of Music in Nordland, a department of Nordland County Council.
