Ensemble for These Times

Ensemble for These Times ( performs 20th and 21st century music that is relevant, engaging, original and compelling—that resonates today and will speak to tomorrow—and we strongly believe in the power of artistic beauty, intelligence, wit, lyricism, and irony to create a deep understanding of our times and the human condition.

E4TT's second recording The Hungarians: From Rozsa to Justus (Centaur CRC 3660) won a Gold Medal in the 2018 Global Music Awards in three categories, chamber music, ensemble, and album.

E4TT's debut CD Surviving: Women's Words (Centaur Rec. CRC) won a Silver Medal in the 2016 Global Music Awards and  was reviewed at as "...four passionate meditations on the Holocaust experience delivered through a unique and highly compelling pair of voices, those of both composer and singer" and at American Record Guide as "fascinating," with music that is "...compelling, varied and harmonically interesting" and "creates a dark, contemplative atmosphere."
