Israel Contemporary Players
In 1991 the Israel Contemporary Players (ICP) were founded with the aim of bringing 20th century repertoire for chamber ensembles as well as new and latest works onto stages in Israel. Comprising 15 musicians the ensemble has at its disposal an electronics studio as well as a concert hall serving as a venue not only for concert series but also workshops with composers and conductors, also in cooperation with the Jerusalem Music Centre Educational Projects. In cooperation with the EvS Music Foundation and in celebration of their 20th anniversary the ICP have now issued five composition commissions to Hana Ajiashvili, Josef Bardanashvili, Yinam Leef, Ofer Pelz and Dan Yuhas – composers of very different generations, traditions, origins and backgrounds nevertheless all based in Israel.
