Featuring both original scores and new arrangements with lights, staging, and amplification more commonly seen at rock acts, collectif9 heralds a new age in genre-bending classical performance. Featuring folk-inspired music by Brahms, BartÃ³k, Schnittke, and AndrÃ© Gagnon, the band transcends all musical styles and creates a connection between classical music and pop-culture audiences.
The repertoire of the group is integral to its identity. Between bursts of energy and dreamlike states, many of the presented pieces are original arrangements, and have rarely been played on the same program. The result? The music of collectif9 reveals the unexpected!
