Anima Eterna Brugge

Founded in 1987 by Jos van Immerseel, Anima Eterna Brugge is an internationally renowned project orchestra based in Bruges, Belgium. The aim of Anima with each project: to explore the original soundscapes in which composers have lived, worked and created each piece.

Depending on the programme, the orchestra can range from 7 to 80 musicians, while the repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to Gershwin. Research, sourcing period instruments and extensive preparation precedes each new project: which instruments inspired a composer, how did those instruments sound at the time, what were the playing techniques and what were the relevant editions. All elements that define the sound and character of each performance.

In short, Anima Eterna Brugge is a collective of dedicated musicians, all of whom are acknowledged specialists in their field, coming together to share their experience, research and passion with an audience.

Anima can be seen regularly performing as a resident company in Concertgebouw Brugge, and as  “Ensemble Associée” at l’Opéra de Dijon. The orchestra strives to continue to share their unique sound with over 50 cd’s distributed worldwide by Outhere Music, and with their 90 000 followers on Spotify.
