Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) returns to Krakow to perform favorites from the group’s multi-year exploration of chamber music and film arrangements by composers who fled to Hollywood from Europe in the 1930s and ‘40s and established today’s “Hollywood” sound, along with Polish composers of the same era

Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) – Winner of The American Prize in 2021 for Chamber Music Performance, Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) made its international debut in Berlin in 2012 and has toured in Poland, Spain, the U.S., and in Hungary, sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Budapest. E4TT’s three CDs have all medaled in the Global Music Awards; the group’s latest recording, “The Guernica Project,” commemorating the 85th anniversary of the horrific bombing of civilians in the Spanish Civil war and Picasso’s iconic response to the tragedy, was just released on Centaur Records on June 17, 2022. The group focuses on 20th and 21st century music that is relevant, engaging, original and compelling—music that resonates with today and speaks to tomorrow and that harnesses the power of artistic beauty, intelligence, wit, lyricism, and irony to create a deep understanding of our times and the human condition—and was founded in 2007 as the Jewish Music & Poetry Project.
