2022 Iannis Xenakis’ centenary

In 2022, we will celebrate both the centenary of the composer Iannis Xenakis and the sixtieth birthday of the Percussions de Strasbourg. We are very proud to have collaborated so closely with this composer who dedicated to us the works Persephassa (1969) and Pléiades (1979), which have become a must in the field of percussion.
These two flagship pieces will be the subject of a new recording to be released in 2022 and of a series of concerts, about which we will keep you regularly informed.
It will start with Kore / Persephassa at the Maerzmusik Berlin festival on 27 and 28 March 2020.

TIMELESSNESS on Arte Concert

Timelessness, Thierry de Mey’s transdisciplinary show for eight percussionists is available on Arte Concert.
Premiered in 2019 at the Festival Musica, Timelessness is a true “artistic and political manifesto”, in the words of the composer. This show is woven of gestures as well as sounds: in counterpoint to instrumental pieces, Table Music, Silent Must be, Floor Patterns, or Hands, choreographed by Wim Vandekeybus, make the musician’s body the eloquent instrument of a silent music.
In partnership with the City of Strasbourg

The family is expanding

The ensemble welcomes new musicians ! 5 new percussionists joined the Percussions de Strasbourg at the end of this year, on the occasion of the French creation of 100 Cymbals by Ryoji Ikeda. Their arrival will allow us to carry on the many projects for the years to come. You can find the whole artistic team here.
