The ensemble regularly commissions, performs and records works by Israeli composers and so far has premiered over 100 Israeli compositions, besides performing an international repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries. The ensemble collaborates with the finest European and Israeli conductors and soloists, including Michel Tabatchnik, Peter Rundel, Jonathan Nott, Ilan Volkov, Fabian Panisello, Christian Eggen, Dietrich Henschel, Irvine Arditti, Boris Berman and George Benjamin, to name just a few. The ICP, which was awarded the National Lottery Foundation prize for excellence in Israel, is internationally renowned and receives frequent invitations to perform at the most prestigious venues and festivals in Europe and Asia.
