About

'Preludes to Disaster' is the first release of the new series Figura Ensemble Edition.

A mezzo-soprano, three instrumentalists, a composer, a poet and an architect – Figura Ensemble is a musical collective with a mind of its own. Their speciality is contemporary music, having given (since their founding in 1993) the world premieres of more than 200 works from Denmark and abroad, as well as a large number of Danish premieres. Alongside a history of tireless work in music, opera and education, Figura has performed in many countries.

As evidenced by their current CD, Figura thrives on collaboration, both in Denmark and abroad. They have worked closely with composers such as Timo Kreuser, Derek Bermel and Steingrímur Rohloff (who at the time of these recordings was composer in residence with Figura), with musicians like Garth Knox, Matthias Loibner, and Frode Haltli, and with ensembles like Poing and the Seattle Chamber Players, their sister ensemble since 2008.
