Hyperion International Ensemble is a chamber music ensemble based in Bucharest. It was founded in 1976 by composer Iancu Dumitrescu and specializes in the performance of contemporary classical music, more particular it is the main promoter in Romania of the Spectral Music trend. Spectralism has become worldwide present with several notorious main schools from France, Canada, Italy and Romania, the Romanian school being largely accepted as the most valuable contributor to this trend. HYPERION has attained universal prominence due to the openness, force and originality of its creations, being considered, from USA to Japan, from South Africa to Chile or Korea, as the laboratory of daring and original musical contributions. “As a starting point, Hyperion explored possible connections between the most archaic Romanian music - Byzantine music, folk music collected by Bartok, etc. - and today’s avant-garde music. It is a tradition of performance, of interpreting each new score as a provocation of the spirit, and a quest for new domains of sound. Aesthetically, at the heart of this work is the notion of spectrality as it developed in the work of Dumitrescu, Avram and other Romanian composers, that is: a specifically transformational spectrality, as opposed to the structural spectrality of the French Itinéraire group. Hyperion has performed all over Europe, and recently in United States, and recorded numerous LPs and 24 compact discs.”(Mode Records - New York).
