Championing cutting-edge contemporary composers, as well as framing classical repertoire in new contexts, Argento inspires the public’s musical inquiry through education, mentorship, technology, and dialogue. Founded in 2000, Argento consists of 9 core members and regularly expands to up to 30 musicians. Argento’s international reputation is the result of its strong history as a chamber ensemble, the technically demanding work it performs across the world, and its commitment to intellectually rigorous interpretation.
