Ensemble Esperanza

Solisten / Dirigenten


The ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA was founded in winter 2015 by the International Music Academy in Liechtenstein in an effort to provide an education that appeals to the personality as a whole. The members are scholarship holders of the Music Academy between the ages of 15 and 28, come from all over the world and are among the most promising musicians of their generation. The ensemble is led by its concertmaster Chouchane Siranossian. The repertoire ranges from baroque works to contemporary music.

The young ensemble celebrated its debut in February 2015 at the 5th FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION in Bad Ragaz, where it delighted audiences and international press alike with its performances. In the meantime, the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA has given further successful concerts in Germany, Croatia, Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland and has performed with renowned soloists, including the violinists Anne-Sophie Mutter, Chouchane Siranossian, Marc Bouchkov and Sara Domjanic, the recorder player Maurice Steger, the cellists István Várdai, Jens Peter Maintz and Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, the violist Adrien Boisseau and the saxophonist and composer Daniel Schnyder.

The ensemble is a regular guest at festivals such as the "VP Bank Classic Festival" - formerly FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION - and at MusicConnects in Bad Ragaz in Switzerland, the Samobor Music Festival and the Olive Classic Festival in Croatia, the Mozart Festival in Würzburg in Germany as well at the VADUZ CLASSIC festival in Liechtenstein. In 2017 the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA received the “Special Achievement Award” at the “International Classical Music Awards”. In 2018 it received the “Prize for Promoting Young Talent of the Year” at “OPUS KLASSIK”, the new prize for classical music in Germany. A little later, the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA made its debut in the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie with four sold out concerts as part of a mini-festival.

In February 2017 the first CD of the ensemble - "Nordic Suites" - was released by ARS Produktion with works by Edvard Grieg, Frank Bridge, Carl Nielsen and Gustav Holst. The CD "Southern Tunes", released in January 2018 by the same label, with works by Eduard Toldrà, Ottorino Respighi, Komitas and Nino Rota also received excellent reviews. The focus of the “Western Moods” CD, which has been available since the beginning of 2019, is the musical West. All CDs were recorded in the Angelika Kauffmann Hall in Schwarzenberg, Austria, where the fourth CD will also be recorded in February 2022.
