The ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA was formed in 2015 by students of the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein as part of an integral musical education programme. With the exception of the concertmaster and harpsichordist, the ensemble is made up of grantees of the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein who are coming together for their musical projects from all over Europe. The young ensemble made their first appearance in February 2015 at the 5th FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION in Bad Ragaz. Their three performances at the festival were highly successful and received praise from the international press. Since then, the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA has performed with renowned soloists at concert venues in Germany, Liechtenstein, Austria, and Switzerland.
The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary music. Led by concertmaster Chouchane Siranossian, the members of ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA are drawn from twelve European countries.
ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA was presented with the Special Achievement Award 2017 at the International Classical Music Awards.
