What this group does is completely unique. No one else in “Classical music” dares to undertake the feat of improvising whole concerts as a group! If you like the spirit of jazz, Indian ragas, Arabic taqsim, or if you are simply a fan of wonderfully played Baroque music, they are for you.

Welcome to the website of The Scroll Ensemble. We bring back improvisation to classical music in all its facets: from performing to teaching (amateur to professional), from Medieval to contemporary styles to cross-over, from stylish concert to cross-disciplinary event to street musicians, from two musicians to an entire ensemble with singers and dancers and anything else we haven’t come up with yet…
