XelmYa was founded in 2008. One of their goals is to push, foster and develop the instrumentation of the baroque trio sonata into contemporary music and modern times. Since their formation they performed numerous premieres composed especially for this trio. They also perform rarely known pieces. The promotion and fostering of contemporary music is one of the main topics of XelmYa. They holds contact with numerous international composers and develops concepts and programmes for concerts, realised at e.g. the festival “Klangwerkstatt Berlin“or the concert series „Unerhörte Musik“. Exceptional: the project “CONTEMPORARY BACH!” Excerpts of „The art of Fugue“by Johann Sebastian Bach, performed contrastive with contemporary pieces.
