SCENATET performed the opening concert at SPOR festival 2015 as well as the 12-hour long work Ephémère Enchaîné by François Sarhan from Saturday evening till Sunday morning.
Sune Anderberg from SEISMOGRAF wrote among others: “French François Sarhan was also a welcoming feature. Maybe even a revelation if you float in such altitudes. He had created a megalomanic twelve hour work, which was performed by the ensemble SCENATET from Saturday evening to Sunday morning.” Seismograf, 25.05.15.

SCENATET performed a portrait concert of Christian Winther Christensen at the Borealis Festival in Norway, March 2015. It was the first time Winther Christensen was presented at a concert consisting only of the composer’s own works. The concert was described as: “A cornucopia of chamber musical ingenuity and execution.” Seismograf, 28.03.15.
Toner Quinn from The Journal of Music wrote among others: “Another striking concert was the performance by Scenatet ensemble of work by Danish composer Christian Winther Christensen, thrilling because of the fascinating precision, control and even calm in the artists’ writing that is also somehow doused in humor.”

SCENATET is a young Copenhagen-based experimental ensemble, founded by Anna Berit Asp Christensen in 2008. The ensemble works in a field between contemporary music and conceptual art, often with a surprisingly non-instrumental, sensuous and bodily approach to exploring the relation between music, art and people.
