Asko|Schönberg: leading ensembles for new music.
Asko|Schönberg presents daring concerts 
and performances with composed music from 
the 20th and 21st centuries in various 
settings, from concert stages and outdoor 
festivals to theater halls. The ensemble 
develops research projects and educational 
activities. The emphasis is on stimulating 
and creating new work by contemporary makers. 
All this with the aim of inspiring Dutch 
and international audiences and discovering 
new sounds. Asko|Schönberg is ensemble 
in residence at the Muziekgebouw.

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.
