For Composers born after 1990
Ensemble Terrible (Prague)

-is composed mainly of students and graduates of the Music and Dance Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. The ensemble focuses on contemporary and experimental music of the 21st Century and was introduced to Prague audiences in the autumn of 2016 at a MeetFactory concert. An important social and aesthetic concern of the group is to assist bringing new audiences together by the simple selection of the presentation space. This was the case with recent concerts at Venus in Švehlovec, Pianka Dalibor, and Paralelni Polis for last year's Echofluxx 18, an interdisciplinary art festival. This effectively links the academic environment with related forms of contemporary art. Ensemble Terrible rejects the division of art genres as well as judgments such as "high and low art," or even "good or bad art." What may now seem terrible, in time, may become terribly beautiful.

-among the ensemble's significant achievements is also a collaboration with clarinetist Martin Adámek (October 2021), who premiered five compositions for solo clarinet and ensemble.

-ET performs mostly in concert format, but has also premiered chamber operas .finitika and Okno (Patrik Kako & Petr Hora, December 2020). The ensemble has connected with literary art in several concerts with the title Contempoetry in 2019 and 2020 (artistic direction by Petr Hora); the form of site-specific composition and light design was tested in the concert Syn.surround in the New Libeň Synagogue (November 2021, Soňa Vetchá & Jan Rösner.
