NAMES – ensemble prize ’23

NAMES (New Art and Music Ensemble Salzburg) is a contemporary music ensemble from Salzburg founded in 2014. The musicians, who come from seven European countries, aim to combine various forms of contemporary art in their programmes and concepts in order to enrich their musical approach.

Wonderful sonority, precision, expressiveness, delicacy, sonic power, maximum attention to the score and what goes beyond it, sounds that granulate in space and become particles of light.... This is what happened at the premiere of my piece High over the distant horizon.

Javier Torres Maldonado, Composer
