I Solisti del Vento, founded in 1991, is Belgium’s most significant wind ensemble. In this flexible ensemble top musicians enthusiastically associate, each of them renowned chamber musicians as well as acclaimed soloists. They broaden, enrich and question the existing repertoire for winds in an aesthetically justified way through composition assignments and innovative projects based on the cooperation with artists who represent the dramatic arts, dance, and the visual arts. In order to guarantee artistic versatility, the ensemble actively tries to rediscover forgotten but pivotal wind music from the twentieth century as well. Every year the ensemble selects one composer for special attention. Moreover, the ensemble yearly commissions contemporary (Flemish) composers to enlarge the existing wind repertoire. The ensemble is a very active performer on the international level as well.

I Solisti builds bridges towards other disciplines of arts in order to carry out the value of wind music to other horizons.
