Founded in Autumn 2018, Kompass Ensemble is a new music ensemble in Freiburg, Germany.

our formation (violin, percussion, piano) invites us to search for new repertoire and to establish contact especially with young composers - Our first season "h(Ö)rbarium fr( )burg" in Depot.K, reflects on the idea of the medieval herbarium: as we are simply unable to access a complete catalogue of the new works that are premiered every day, how can this help us to understand the way we relate to music?


In this first phase, we must not only learn to know ourselves, but also create our own networks and from there, our own sound imaginarium.

If your are interested to work with us, or are looking for an ensemble to write a new piece, send us an email!
