The ensemble, directed by Marcel Wenger, has already introduced itself to an international audience on the World Music Days 2000 in Luxembourg and on EXPO 2000 in Hanover. For the World Exposition in Hanover, the ensemble represented the Saarland, Lothringen and Luxemburg on the cultural program of the German pavilion with three world premiers of works on the theme of Lucifer. Each year, well over 100 from all over the world submit works written especially for the Luxembourg Sinfonietta for the International Composition Prize Luxembourg. In addition to performing classical works, the London Sinfonietta regularly features world premiers of contemporary compositions in their programs, rehearsed and inspired in close collaboration with the respective composers. Marcel Wengler has the gift of leading his musicians and their audiences with sovereignty and enormous musicality through widely diverging musical worlds.
