Lunatree is a classical ensemble with a unique sound and the commitment of a band. Seven musicians, notable in today’s classical new music scene, each with a background in a different field of music, including chamber and early music, jazz, world music and musical theatre/performance art. In our concerts we like to link these musical worlds so that they feel related. It is one of the points that defines a Lunatree gig.
For our unusual line-up, consisting of clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano, percussion and 2 singers, we rewrite & customise our music. Hence the highly personal sound of the group. A lot of our material we play by heart, so as to be closer to our audience.
Lunatree likes to team up with other groups and acts. To name just a few: Dutch standup comedian Freek de Jonge, multi-instrumentalist Son Lux,jazz-trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, Crowded House leader Neil Finn and the dancers of Club Guy & Roni. These collaborations are not just any cross-over project; Lunatree has the ability to blend and change musical style with the subtlety of a chameleon. In other words, we have the ability to sound like an all-electrical pop band, but compositions by Satie or Pärt we play just as expressively.
