They range from musical co-creation with children and creative projects with other cultural actors to concerts with the greatest classical works and well-known guest soloists.
Each year the Ensemble performs between 90-100 concerts and events. 2 annual festivals, which the ensemble hosts, are the seasons artistic flagships. New concert rooms and formats help to convey the music to a diverse audience.
More than 110 new works have been commissioned by the ensemble from prominent composers of the time, helping to renew and update the classical repertoire with a special focus on Danish music.
Over 30 CD recordings, numerous radio transmissions in DR P2 and continuous digital visibility place the Danish Chamber Players as a significant cultural institution in the Danish music scene.
