Change ensemble is a dynamic group of artists dedicated to developing and performing new work that lies outside of genre-specific categorisations.
The ensemble is formed by outstanding musicians with very diverse backgrounds that range from contemporary classical to jazz and pop. Some of the members are regarded as the most creative performers and composers of the Dutch jazz and improvised scene, and some other members perform regularly with internationally renowned orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Antwerp Symphony, Ludwig Orchestra and Metropole Orkest.
The group works primarily on conceptual album-based projects with a unique instrumentation that brings a fresh sound and a new perspective to the classical and non-classical traditions, resulting in works unrivalled in their beauty, imagination and complexity.
The ensemble is led by composer Rodrigo Faina, who deeply believes in presenting excellent and emotionally communicative music, which transcends conventional and outdated genre distinctions.
The ensemble’s projects reflect Rodrigo´s interests such as literature, dance, film and his diverse musical background.
