MAY 2017
For the 17th anniversary of Olivier Greif's disappearance (13 May) we celebrated by releasing the video of the world premiere of his Danse des Araucans op.89 for two pianos and percussion; result of another pretty fruitful collaboration with Andrew Levine, our sound engineer!!

APRIL 2017
The Ensemble has started yesterday, (April 29th) the first phase of a long project, close to our heart: the recording of Olivier Greif's works. It all started with this very exciting work: the Danse des Araucans, op.89 and its 40 years anniversary of composition (from 1977). More surprises will come about this piece (and others) soon...

MARCH 2017
We had two fantastic concerts in Nîmes (South of France) the 18th and 19th March with our two French programs, which received a great success. These concerts were preceded by two Masterclasses with enthusiastic young talents of the chamber music classes of Nîmes conservatoire under the guidance of Véronique Pélisséro and Dominic Jayles. We left with a collection of beautiful memories... Quadruple concerto - January 2017
FEBRUARY 2017
On February 1st the Ensemble will have the great honor to record for the VPRO tv program, “Vrije Geluiden” in TivoliVredenburg, which will be on air Sunday 26th of this month! On the menu: interview about Olivier Greif's music and life, projects led by the Ensemble and performance of the last movement of Greif's piano Trio. We are looking forward to this new adventure...!

The Ensemble
Olivier Greif Ensemble

The Olivier Greif Ensemble is an international group of young musicians whose core is made of Victoria Dmitrieva pianist, Anne-Elise Thouvenin cellist and Jesus Jimenez violinist based in Netherlands and performing worldwide.

This innovative chamber music Ensemble plays with frames, styles and periods with specific associations of works, drawing those who love the adventure of music: classic and contemporary.
In constant search of new situations and sensations, they like to ignore barriers and conventional ideas having great pleasure in sharing musical treasures with their audiences, offering an inimitable mix of the witty and the sublime, the adventurous and the beloved.

Adaptable and flexible, several guests regularly join the Ensemble to enlarge possibilities of repertoire, changing concerts in multifaceted experience with an intimate environment joining audience and musicians in an intense celebration of music.

The Olivier Greif Ensemble had the pleasure to perform several times on Radio 4 as well as for the Peter The Great Festival of Groningen and in Paris among other locations.

You can find HERE more information about our musicians, and discover more about Olivier Greif HERE.
