Tmesis - chamber music quintet

International chamber music ensemble Tmesis, laureate of the Supernova Competition 2016 by Klara, was founded in 2016 at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, where they are now in residency. Since their recent creation, Tmesis was invited by festivals such as the Klarafestival, the Portuguese HARMOS Festival and the festival Midis-Minimes. They have been broadcasted on the Euroclassical Online Festival and Radio Klara.

These youthful, energetic musicians share their passion for challenging, original chamber music. Hence, Tmesis’ programs guarantee musical journeys full of (re)discoveries through divers and exciting literature. Surprising (own) arrangements give a fresh point of view on monumental (orchestral) masterpieces, with Schönberg’s Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen as a leading example.

The quintet formation, actually a 'pocket-sized orchestra' (winds, strings, piano), is the solid base that guides us throughout a story full of variation. Different repertoire for quintet, interrupted in the style of the rhetorical 'tmesis' (ancient-Greek for ‘cut, break’) by works in contrasting formations and styles (duo, trio, …) – the possibilities are endless! In addition, an original mise en scene tries to subtly break away from the formal stage-experience.
