Soloists, accompanists, orchestral musicians. Varied backgrounds lead to eminent ensemble performance. Ever since its start in 1991 the Hexagon Ensemble enriches the Dutch podia with its high quality and its joyful way of making music. In the last few years the Hexagon Ensemble has focused on the international podia as well, backed up by the renowned Antwerp impresariate AriŽn. The well-thought out programs have been universally praised. The basis for this programming lies in the thorough research of the repertoire. Interesting works, never published before or wrongly forgotten, from libraries from all over the world are discovered. The selection of compositions that has been compiled in the meantime can be called unique. Subsequently: the programming, with its obvious links and arresting titles, is what Hexagon is all about. This, in combination with the splendid and catching ensemble playing, is the reason that the concerts are being greeted again and again with great enthusiasm.
