Contempoartensemble was founded in 1992 by Mauro Ceccanti and is made up from a varying group of soloists focusing on twentieth-century and international contemporary music. Based on the premise of a consonance and contiguity between music and the visual arts, the group often works closely with contemporary art centres, museums and other venues chosen especially for each performance in connection with cultural events and avant-garde art exhibitions. From the outset the ensemble has received the support and collaboration of some of the foremost composers of our time, including Luciano Berio (Honorary President since the group’s foundation), Maxwell Davies, Reich, Henze, Sotelo, De Pablo, Pousseur, Bacalov, Vandor, Sciarrino, Vacchi, Battistelli, Fedele, Panni, Clementi, Bussotti, Gaslini, Lombardi, Corghi, Dall’Ongaro, Sani, Mosca, Vacca, Colasanti, Taglietti and Colombo Taccani, many of whom have written works for the ensemble and its director. Since 2003 the group has organised the Contempoprato festival which involves the towns of Prato and Florence in the creation of a unique stage dedicated to contemporary music.
