The basel sinfonietta was founded by young musicians in 1980 with the aim of bringing new combinations of contemporary music, and works both unknown and well-known, to a public that is open to unusual and experimental sounds. With its eye for the unconventional and provocative, the sinfonietta has made a name for itself at home and abroad, both in its smaller formation and as a full symphony orchestra. Besides traditional symphony concerts, the basel sinfonietta has organized numerous crossover programmes in the sphere of jazz, dance and performance as well as various silent-film and multi-media projects.
