Qaartsiluni, an Alaskan Eskimo word, may be translated as hope, togetherness, in anticipation of an explosion.

The Qaartsiluni Ensemble performs classical masterpieces as well as works of contemporary composers. The ensemble made its debut in the spring of 2012 with a unique concert series entitled Central European Portraits. The programs featured works of Hungarian, Slovak and Czech composers; performed by musicians from the three Central European countries. The program highlighted the artistic goal of the ensemble, which remains focused on the exploration and interpretation of Central and Eastern European musical heritage and contemporary art. Central European Portraits was recorded by the Hungarian Radio; a compilation is to be released on CD.

The long-term aim of the ensemble is to create new links through the promotion of artistic cooperation within the Central European region and to enhance solidarity and mutual appreciation of each other’s cultures. The Qaartsiluni Ensemble strives for artistic autonomy, constantly seeking connections to cultural establishments and the broad spectrum of cultural life. We believe in building a community and a creative musical environment to educate an audience that is responsive to historical values, and yet is willing to join us in our quest to explore the unknown present.
