λ-ensemble (lamda ensemble) conceives music and concert experience through a holistic perspective, aiming to bring together various forms and media of artistic output, thus adopting a more philosophical approach. Εxplores works of pure absolute music focusing on 20th and 21st century. Of particular interest to λ are works which have been forgotten after their first presentation or buried for decades and discovered only recently… Even more so, works which have not even been written yet.
λ-ensemble’s concept emerged from the interest in Anestis Logothetis’ scores, a composer of greek origin established in Vienna and a leading pioneer of 20th century composition. Logothetis’ graphic notation system, which constitutes a milestone in the evolution of musical notation, resembles more abstract paintings rather than music scores. Every interpretation of such a score has a different musical result since there are hardly any specific music symbols used. Consequently, a fascinating field to explore arises, leaving space for the personal stamp of the interpreter.
Logothetis’ initial -the “λ” (lamda) of the greek alphabet-, as well as his surname’s first component – “Logo” (“λόγος”) meaning word, ratio, consideration- were the inspiration of the ensemble’s name.
“λ” is looking forward to collaborating with contemporary composers and visual artists from Greece and abroad. Works of unusual or unexploitable instrumentation in presentations where visual artists and musicians join their forces on stage.
