Brussels-based chamber music ensemble Carousel gathers together eleven talented young musicians, who aim to perform chamber music at the highest artistic level. Coming from eight European countries, Carousel’s enthusiastic musicians offer a modern and creative approach to both well-known repertoires as well as contemporary works. The ensemble has the privilege of being at the creative heart of music premiering pieces written for them by a composer in residence. With flexible and dynamic programmes, Carousel covers a large wide ranging repertoire, varying from trio to octet.
Founding members are clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe and violinist Samuel Nemtanu (principal second violins Brussels Philharmonic) and together with the others in the ensemble, they wish Carousel to bring its listeners closer to the ensemble’s core philosophy: communicating in a universal language that connects people and dissolves cultural and artistic borders. Go along on a vivid, joyful and enthusiastic musical ride, which will appeal to all who enjoy great music played with passion and commitment.
