The chamber music group Het Collectief was founded in 1998 in Brussels. Working consistently from a solid nucleus of five musicians, the group has created an intriguing and idiosyncratic sound, achieved by an unfamiliar mix of strings, wind instruments and piano.

In its repertoire, Het Collectief returns to the Second Viennese School, the roots of modernism. Starting from this solid basis, it explores important twentieth century repertoire, including the very latest experimental trends. The group also creates a furore with daring crossovers between the contemporary and the traditional repertoire and with adaptations of ancient music.

Next to the many concert venues in Belgium, Het Collectief regularly brings its productions to concert halls abroad, including The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Hong Kong, Spain, Peru and Brazil (Sao Paulo, Campos do Jordao, Rio de Janeiro).
