The Tyrolean Ensemble for Modern Music (TENM) is a unique group of musicians in the Austrian region of the Tyrol. 23 musicians from local conservatories and symphony orchestras regularly meet in various formations to play modern music. Founded in 1984 it is still going strongly and was given a prestigious award by the Tyrol government in 2003.

Its repertoire covers the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. In 2004 its performance of Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex was named the best free theatrical production in Austria. TENM has performed successfully in Japan, Turkey, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Italy and Israel. Since 2007 the accordionist Harald Pröckl has been directing the ensemble.
