FRAMES Percussion, an ensemble dedicated to the newly created repertoire, represents the talent and commitment to the music of its time. Formed by a new generation of percussionists from our country, the group was born with the intention of presenting the most unique and innovative proposals, which include the most demanding works in the current repertoire, with maximum preparation and maximum respect for new compositional languages.
The impact of its presentation in 2014 has led the group to quickly become one of the main references in the interpretation of new music in our country. Linked in its beginnings to Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya and the ESMUC, the group maintains a close relationship with L'Auditori de Barcelona.
