Impronta – leaving a trace – giving music an imprint – creating an identity through music – a fingerprint for social and cultural exchange
Impronta is a 2012-founded young ensemble based in Mannheim, that has already established itself as a leading group devoted to the promotion of contemporary music. Impronta has as its main purpose the establishment of a dialogue between the music of our time with that of other musical eras, tracking in that way that red line which links together musical expressions from different eras, a connection that was believed lost due to the progressive marginalization of the music of our time.
Great importance is also given to premieres, especially of those composers who through their works showed their peculiar expressive originality.
In this way the ensemble is always open to exploring new forms of musical language and the expansion of its repertoire.
Impronta has already participated in renowned festivals such as “oggimusica”, the most important festival for contemporary music in the Italian part of Switzerland or the most important Hungarian festival for contemporary music “CaFe Budapest”, as well as in renowned venues such as the LAC, the new auditorium in Lugano, the BMC (Budapest Music Center) or the Yamaha Concert Hall in Vienna.
