Oscar Edelstein is considered by many as one of the most important & original composers in Argentina. His work is viewed as profuse & crucial in the map of Latin American contemporary music, new opera and performance. Always pushing the musical lines between the classical, the contemporary & the popular, his career is distinguished by a defiant spirit of independence & a desire to constantly break new ground, whilst his music has been described as the first time that Latin America has led the avant-garde. Having been awarded important prizes throughout his career, in 2011 he was honored with a prestigious award from the National Arts Foundation of Argentina for his out-standing artistic achievement.

Edelstein founded the ENS in 1997 – the format may look like the instruments associated with the world of rock or jazz but the result is completely different. Comparisons have made from Edgar Varese to Astor Piazzolla, or from Frank Zappa to John Cage, but really what speaks about the music of the ENS is the driving rhythms & the relentless quest for originality.
