œnm - österreichisches ensemble für neue musik

For more than 40 years, œnm has dedicated itself to performing contemporary music and is one of Austria’s leading orchestras for music of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Over 40 years of pioneering work

oenm was founded in 1975 by composer Klaus Ager and clarinetist Ferenc Tornai. The goal of the orchestra is to provide an overview of current trends in Austrian as well as international music. Promoting the next generation plays a central role: In cooperation with Mozarteum University, œnm works with young talent in the fields of composition, conducting and instrumental music.

A broad spectrum

Organized within the orchestra are top musicians from 11 nations – as required, the ensemble performs in constellations of 1 to 5 musicians, and in larger groups in exceptional cases. Since it was founded, the orchestra has been involved in over 300 first performances. In recent years, Salzburg’s renowned music festivals have also embraced the theme of new music. In addition, œnm performs 4 concerts per season in the Solitär at Mozarteum University. Focusing on different theme in each case. “œnm. ganz privat” in the Atelier at the Salzburger Künstlerhaus provides a uniquely intimate setting for encounters with modern music.
