About us


Asko|Schönberg: one of the leading ensembles for new music. Quality, experimentation and innovative programming with an eye for current events are our most important characteristics. Thanks to a wide network of musicians, conductors, composers and versatile young makers and partners from various art disciplines, Asko|Schönberg is able to contribute to the future of performing arts. The ensemble operates around the world right from its home base in Amsterdam. The programming balances out the rich collection of important 20th century composers with the most recent 21st century work, with a strong emphasis on the work of current composers, both of which are performed at various venues, festivals and interdisciplinary performances.

Our team consists of passionate musicians on stage, a driven organisation behind the scenes and a committed board of trustees. Together we aim to contribute to the repertoire of the future whilst enthusiastically interpreting and performing the already existing 20th century repertoire.


Asko is proud to collaborate with various venues, composers and young makers on its shows and performances.


Asko is supported by several partners that contribute to its yearly programme and development.
