Ensemble ConTempo Beijing

Established in May 2011, Ensemble ConTempo Beijing is the first contemporary ensemble in China, which combines Chinese traditional instruments and Western instruments. ECTB aims to boost Chinese contemporary music and promote exchanges between China and other countries. It discovers and connects fine composers and performers throughout the world. Through combining the Chinese and the Western, Chinese traditional culture are exemplified and the cultural merits of Chinese traditional instruments are also broadly understood and well-accepted.

Since its founding, ECTB has been invited to perform at many renowned festivals and venues, such as the Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival in Germany, the XXXVII Music in Old Cracow Fastival in Poland, TONLAGEN 2012 - the Dresden festival of contemporary music in Germany, and the Tongyeong International Music Festival 2013 in Korea. Some of the concerts of ECTB were broadcasted on Deutschland Rundfunk and the Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR). The ensemble has performed over 80 new works, out of which there were 27 world premières.
