Luxembourg Chamber Music Society
Founded in 1985, the KMVL has firmly cemented its reputation within Luxembourg’s music scene with over 30 years of music productions.
Highlights include productions and concert cycles such as “Musique et Espace”; “Helmut Lachenmann”, a portrait of the composer in five concerts; “Fins de siècles 999-1999”; “Iberia”, a ten-concert cycle on Spanish chamber music; “L’Union Européenne s’agrandit”, a series of concert cycles featuring the chamber music of future EU Member States; the concert cycle “Dialogues fascinants”; the stage concert “Portrait Louis Spohr” and, finally, the stage production of “Pierrot Lunaire” by Schönberg in collaboration with the TNL (Luxembourg National Theatre).
The KMVL has also staged concerts and productions aimed at young audiences and their families, which include “Brundibár”, an opera for children by Hans Krása in a coproduction with the Philharmonie Luxembourg and the Conservatoire de musique du Nord, “The Carnival of the Animals” by Saint-Saëns and the opera “Der 35. Mai oder Konrad reitet in die Südsee” by Violeta Dinescu in collaboration with the TNL.
The KMVL is a unique and original player on the cultural stage: it is both a concert organiser and a protean ensemble of musicians. It performs contemporary pieces, often for the first time in Luxembourg, in combination with works from the classical and romantic eras.
The KMVL’s performance repertoire covers the works of the great classical masters and prominent composers of the first half of the 20th century, alongside those of contemporary and Luxembourgish composers. It regularly extends invitations to eminent foreign musicians, while nonetheless ensuring that it enlists outstanding professionals residing in Luxembourg for the majority of its concert cycles.
The activities of the KMVL are financially supported by the Ministry of Culture.
Thanks to a longstanding collaboration with the Centre des Arts Pluriels, a joint cycle of chamber music concerts takes place in Ettelbruck each season.
The KMVL also organises and performs concerts within the entire SAAR-LOR-LUX Greater Region in coproduction with other cultural houses and commissions.
When performing abroad, the KMVL regularly showcases works by Luxembourg composers or composers residing in the Grand Duchy (Kerger, Reuter, Fenigstein, Müllenbach, Lenners, Brönnimann, Halsdorf…).
