Founded in 1987 by Jos van Immerseel, Anima Eterna Brugge is an internationally renowned project orchestra based in Bruges. The aim of Anima Eterna is to explore the original soundscapes in which composers have lived, worked and created each piece.
Depending on the programme, the orchestra ranges from 7 to 80 musicians, with a repertoire from Monteverdi to Gershwin. Research, sourcing period instruments and extensive preparation precedes each new project.
Anima Eterna performs as orchestra in residence at Concertgebouw Brugge, and as Ensemble Associé at the opera of Dijon. The orchestra recorded over 50 CDs, its recordings are available on Spotify and Apple Music.
