I SOLISTI Belgian wind ensemble Antwerp
Innovative, versatile, surprising. I SOLISTI gives classical music a creative twist. The ensemble started 30 years ago as a traditional wind octet and grew under the inspiring leadership of artistic director and founding father Francis Pollet into an all round music ensemble with international recognition. I SOLISTI gives opportunities to young talented artists and produces adventurous programs of opera and music theater.
I SOLISTI unites famed musicians with a solid reputation as a soloist and orchestra or chamber musician. A permanent core of 25 musicians is expanded or restricted, depending on the project. I SOLISTI is working closely with almost all major venues in Belgium and is frequently invited to festivals and concert halls throughout Europe. The ensemble, in residence at the Conservatory of Antwerp and campus resident of deSingel International Arts Campus, fulfills a unique position within the Belgian music landscape and is structurally subsidized by the Flemish Government.
