Founded in 1998 in Strasbourg (France), Linea is an internationally renowned ensemble.

Linea has already performed at important new music festivals and has given concerts in many different places of the world, e.g. New York, Seoul, Budapest, Brussels, Bilbao, Berlin, Huddersfield, Geneva, Lyon, Royaumont, Prague, etc. The shows were broadcast by major radio stations such as France Musique, BBC and SWR (Germany).

Furthermore, the ensemble is committed to fostering young and talented composers through commissions, master classes, and concerts. Another of Linea’s trademarks is its intercultural approach: putting music from other continents on the map, and organizing exchanges with ensembles from other countries.

From the beginning, the ensemble has gained the confidence of famous composers, paving the way for close and fruitful collaborations with big names such as Ivo Malec (CD 2001), Péter Eötvös (CD 2011, master class 2012) and Brian Ferneyhough (Premieres in 2011 and 2013, CD in project).
