INSEKTEN: New Microludes

"...I can wait, like an insect. I´m always waiting." 

 (I. Stravinsky)

UPDATE 01.01.2021

We would like to thank all of you who participated in our "INSEKTEN" call - we are surprised by the variety of the pieces and will be delighted to give them a performance. We received more than 100 pieces, and more than one hour of music (!).


We have started with the premieres!

as you can imagine, to make an Open Call with the idea of playing absolutely ALL works had an unexpected result, that is, we received more pieces than what we imagined.

With 6 of our 2020 concerts cancelled (including our participation in the Georges Aperghis Festival in Athens), it has been difficult to adapt to the new environment. If it were not for the help of the New Music Department of the Freiburg University of Music, we would not even had one chance to play this year after the Lockdown.

For this reason we have to be patient. We will play all pieces, if not live, we will record them for an Online Premiere in 2021, in sets of 20 pieces each. As you can imagine, not all pieces are 30 seconds long, but we will play them anyway. 

Below you will find our 2021 Plan, where we will premiere your pieces online. If we have the chance to play them live, we will update as soon as possible. But in the meantime this is what we´ve got! We´re already excited to rehearse the first pieces for 2021!

Below you will find the list of works we received and if we played them already.


We will be in touch. Please contact us!
