Founded in 2012, Ensemble for New Music Tallinn is a collective with a non-permanent membership. The ensemble strives to offer its audiences the very best of contemporary music, provide contemporary composers an opportunity to be heard, and enrich the local and international cultural scene with their meticulously chosen programmes and approach. The artistic director of the ensemble is composer and conductor Arash Yazdani. The program includes pieces from composers with various backgrounds and aesthetics, with one strong common thread, of being originated in Baltic states. The term Aphorism was first used in the Aphorisms of Hippocrates in which the first sentence of his work is: “Life is short, art long…, judgment difficult.”

Live broadcast by Klassikaraadio and transferred across Europe through the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).
