Ever since its formation in 1990, Ensemble Musikfabrik has had the reputation of being one of the leading ensembles for contemporary music. Following the literal meaning of its name, Ensemble Musikfabrik is particularly dedicated to artistic innovation. New, unknown, and often personally commissioned works in unusual media are typical of their productions. The results of their extensive work, usually taking place in close collaboration with the composers, are presented by the Cologne-based international soloist ensemble in up to 80 concerts a year in both Germany and abroad, at Festivals, in their own series »Musikfabrik in WDR« and in regular radio recordings and CD productions.
Ensemble Musikfabrik is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
