Born out of the acclaimed New York City venue, Le Poisson Rouge, Ensemble LPR is an assemblage of New York’s finest musicians personifying the venue’s commitment to aesthetic diversity, artistic excellence and true musical ambassadorship. Ensemble LPR performs an eclectic spectrum of music – from works by the finest living composers, to compelling interpretations of the standard repertoire and collaborations with distinguished artists from classical as well as non-classical backgrounds. The Ensemble has partnered with such extraordinary artists as Timo Andres, San Fermin, Daniel Hope, Taka Kigawa, Jennifer Koh, John Lurie, Ursula Oppens, Max Richter, Andre de Ridder, Christopher Rountree, and Fred Sherry.
In 2008 Le Poisson Rouge changed the classical music landscape, creating a new environment in which to experience art music. In doing so, Le Poisson Rouge expanded the classical music listenership and pushed the popular palette in all directions. The New York Times heralds Le Poisson Rouge as “[a] forward-thinking venue that seeks to showcase disparate musical styles under one roof…artistically planned eclecticism” and “[the] coolest place to hear contemporary music.” The Los Angeles Times raves “[the] place isn’t merely cool…the venue is a downright musical marvel.” With Ensemble LPR, Founding Executive & Artistic Director David Handler brings this same ethos to the creative forefront, channeling the venue’s curatorial daring and merit to the group’s own artistry.
André de Ridder
André de Ridder has collaborated with artists and ensembles as diverse as the Philharmonia Orchestra, award-winning cartoon band Gorillaz, jazz musician Uri Caine and MusikFabrik. He is in his fifth seasons as Principal Conductor of the UK-based Sinfonia ViVA, and his programmes with the orchestra are typically rich in innovation. His passion for the development of contemporary music has contributed to his position as one of today’s most fascinating and versatile conductors. Read more at www.andrederidder.com
