Ensemble Resonanz takes a special place in Hamburg’s music landscape. The chamber orchestra is considered to be one of the world's leading ensembles and is renowned for its innovative interpretations of both classical and modern pieces.

Creating a resonance – this is what happens when a musical instrument is played, when both artists and listeners resonate with the tones and melodies produced. Combining an extraordinary joy of playing with pure artistic quality, Ensemble Resonanz is one of the world's finest chamber orchestras. The ensemble excels at applying old and new music to vibrant, innovative and inspiring contexts, and this goes for both classical and modern pieces. As well as serving as the residence ensemble of the Elbphilharmonie’s Recital Hall, Ensemble Resonanz is firmly anchored in the heart of St Pauli – at the Resonanzraum in the Media Bunker on Feldstrasse. Here, as well as in many other concert halls, music clubs and bars of the city, Ensemble Resonanz create a synthesis of arts as it crosses the boundaries between different music genres with its string instruments.
