TransAtlantic Ensemble


TransAtlantic Ensemble 

hailing from Berlin and New York, the TransAltantic Ensemble has been making music on either side of the Atlantic since 2005. As a forum for two dynamic leaders in today’s generation of chamber musicians, this ensemble of clarinet and piano is dedicated to directing the course of classical music’s evolution. 

The Ensemble’s innovative repertoire, dynamic sound and engaging stage presence attracts audiences from the contemporary, crossover, classical, and jazz worlds.  Their international tours have included appearances in New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, repeat performances throughout Berlin, and stops in Hamburg, Leipzig, and Costa Rica.

Central to the TransAtlantic Ensemble’s mission is collaborating with living composers. Their ongoing relationships with Paquito D’Rivera, Miguel del Aguila, Valerie Coleman, Jeff Scott, Mohammed Fairouz and Richard Padron have resulted in significant contributions to the clarinet and piano repertoire.

Interaction with audiences is a hallmark of TransAtlantic performances.  The multilingual ensemble members enthusiastically communicate their love of live chamber music to music lovers of all ages and from diverse backgrounds.

They can be heard on E1 Entertainment (Koch Classics), Steinway/Arkive Records, and Tango Malambo.
