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.
