Since its foundation in 1990, the Cologne-based Ensemble Musikfabrik has been one of the leading ensembles of contemporary music. And they do indeed live up to their ensemble title: the Ensemble Musikfabrik is particularly committed to artistic innovation and focuses on new, unknown, and unusual compositions, as well as premiering brand new works. All essential decisions are made by the musicians themselves and are their own responsibility. The examination of modern forms of communication and experimental means of expression in the field of music and performance is a central concern for them, in addition to the interdisciplinary nature of the projects. Thanks to its extraordinary profile and outstanding artistic quality, the Ensemble Musikfabrik is a sought-after and reliable partner of important conductors and composers worldwide.
