Ensemble Intercolor is a trailblazing young trio whose wholly original approach to music ensures a vibrant and dynamic program at every concert. Their singular instrumental combination of cimbalom, viola, clarinet and voice combines with their varied cultural backgrounds – the three musicians are from Belarus, Colombia and France – to create a perennially fresh perspective. They expand their instrumentation with voice, percussion and sound experiences using objects. Conceiving of each instrument as a human voice, they create unique, unforgettable transcriptions of early vocal music.

In their program “Inspiratrices,” they pay homage to nearly-forgotten female composers of vocal music. New arrangements bring fresh life to historical works written primarily during the Renaissance and spanning the 12th through 17th centuries. The program also features contemporary music inspired by the female figures of the past.
