Ensemble Mutatis is made up of ten young, enthusiastic musicians, all of whom have graduate degrees, and whom, besides playing in the ensemble, are well-established in leading positions in Danish and Swedish orchestras.
The ensemble took the name “Mutatis” from the latin ‘mutare,’ meaning ‘to change,’ because they wish to illustrate the ensemble’s flexibility.
Comprised of a string quintet and a wind quintet, Ensemble Mutatis is able to present classical music’s broad wealth of chamber music, spanning from the mid-1700s all the way to today.
The concert presenter is invited to build a program with everything from solo instrumental pieces to large-scale works including octets, nonets, and decets.
The individual’s biographies can be read by clicking the pictures of the musicians in the menu “Ensemblet” .
There’s less than a week until the next Ensemble Mutatis concert! On March 9th, we will play at the Conservatory of Music in Odense, and as always, we will present an exciting and varied program. Ensemble Mutatis has had a short vacation, as our Schubert birthday celebration in Roskilde was unfortunately cancelled. We return, however, to Roskilde, when the Schubert Society holds their 20th year anniversary celebrations.
A fantastic concert, a fantastic venue – in Glyptoteket – is completed. It was a boomy dress rehearsal, but the more than 300-person audience in the hall took care of that! It was a pleasure for us to play for such a large and good-humoured public. And with the positive feedback, we look even more forward to our next concert in Roskilde on January 31st, where we hope many will share in celebrating Schubert’s birthday with us.
We’re well into our second season, with our first three concerts taking place in a space of two weeks. We started with Schubertiaden, with whom, after our debut concert there last year, we have begun a longer collaboration. Our concert at Hockenhavn Castle in Nyborg was in beautiful surroundings, in a hall full of enthusiastic concert-goers. Two weeks later, on September 1st, we had our international debut at Glücksborg Castle in Germany, which made for a good, solid day-trip.
We are happy to welcome violinist Emily Fowler as permanent member of the ensemble.
We look forward to play for you during the rest of the season, and wish to thank our sponsors: Augustinus Foundation, Toyota Foundation and the A.P.Møller og Hustru Chastine McKinney-Møller Foundation.
Our two concerts in April concludes our season. We played for a good-humoured audience in the beautiful Mørdrup Church in Espergærde, and on April 17th, we accompanied our clarinettist Nanna in her debut recital from the Royal Academy of Music. It was a great event with a large audience in the former Danish Radio Concert Hall.
We look forward to meet our audiences next season – it is an exciting season programme, and you can find the details here on our website.
We are very happy to be playing concerts again after a couple months’ break! Our latest concert in Birkerød gave us an opportunity to truly live up to our name “Mutatis,” as we presented a program with wind trio, flute quartet, wind quintet and finally Spohr’s grand Nonet. We are in full swing with preparations for our concerts in April, and we have updated our concert calendar up until spring 2014. There are many exciting performances ahead!
Now you can experience Mutatis in video! See below, where we have put together a small sampling from our concert on November 25th, 2012, at Nødebo Kro. But we’re even better live! Mark February 27th on your calendars for our concert in Birkerød.
Some of the ensemble’s wind players gave a trio concert at a packed Hørsholm Church. It was a pleasure to play for the 300 people who braved the December cold to come to our concert.
Our ’13/’14 season is beginning to come together, with concerts across Denmark – on Zealand, Funen and Jutland. Follow along with our concert calendar, which is regularly updated with venues and dates, as they are confirmed.
Ensemble Mutatis wishes a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of our friends.
…is the month, where Ensemble Mutatis became known across Denmark, as we were featured in the national radio program “Radio Klassisk.” We gave our latest concert in the amazingly beautiful surroundings at Nødebo Kro, where we, with a widely varied programme, displayed Ensemble Mutatis’ “mutability.”
Our fan page on Facebook has doubled in size, and we are already looking forward to our next concert in February.
We are pleased to present our ‘After-Work Series.’ Beyond our traditional concerts, we would like to share our love for classical music outside the concert hall. The new After-Work Series involves shorter concerts/events for companies, where we both play and talk about classical music.
Please get in touch, should this be of interest to you or your company.
Ensemble Mutatis’ début concert was held on August 12th, 2012, as the opening concert of the Schubert Society’s yearly Schubertiade festival. Our programme included Schubert’s famous Octet, and we received good reviews of our performance. We look forward to preparing and presenting our next concert at Nødebo Kro.
