The musicians of ENMT are former students and graduates of Estonian Academy of Music and Theater.
The main focus of ensemble is on promoting new music at its best and suggesting an alternative path for musicians, composers and public by introducing a substitute for domination of mainstream music industry and/or institutions and orchestras in general. In this regard, ENMT is proud to provide unique and daring experiences for its audience, by introducing different and less discovered aspects of new music to Estonian and worldwide public.
Alongside commissioning new pieces to Estonian and international promising and talented composers, ENMT has been responsible for Estonian premiers of several milestone works by Georg Friedrich Haas, James Tenney, Michael Maierhof, Alvin Lucier among others.

As the major emphasize of Ensemble for New Music Tallinn (ENMT) has always been on presenting fresh and different types of contemporary music we always try to reach out to new generation of audience. We believe that it is possible to keep the highest quality of artistic music and yet attract wider audience to enjoy music.

Festival Artistic Director: Mehdi Hosseini.
Programme: Georg Friedrich Haas (* 1953) – Atthis (2009), for soprano, clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin, viola, cello and double bass.
L’arsenale, established in Treviso in 2005 by young musicians and composers under the art direction of Filippo Perocco, aims to fill the gap between composing and making music; between conceiving a sound and the gesture that will produce that sound; between the lifetime of a sound and the receiving space that will consume it. As confirmation of a perduring research devoted to New Music, the ensemble commits from the beginning to perform premieres and on demand works of young composers, promptly adapting its personnel each time.
L’arsenale organises its own festival, L’arsenale_Nuova Musica a Treviso, that features concerts, seminars, master classes and the composition course called Chiamata alle Musiche. It constantly proposes collaborations with international level ensembles, soloists and conductors like Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, ensemble Argento, L’Imaginarie, ACME, Metropolis, Ecce, Latvian Radio Choir, ensemble Algoritmo, Edison Studio, Mario Caroli, Marco Angius, Zoltan Pesko, Michele Lomuto, Nadir Vassena, Kaspars Putninsh. In 2011 and 2012 the ensemble received the Grant in Aid from Ernst von Siemens Foundation as support for its concerts activity.
