Two institutions in particular are closely linked to the musical avant-garde in Germany – the Ensemble Modern and the Donaueschingen Music Days. The Foundation funds the activities of this world-leading orchestra in Frankfurt am Main as well as the festival of New Music held each year in the Black Forest.

The Foundation continues to promote and strengthen the area of New Music following the successful conclusion of the New Music Network programme. In 2013 it began funding the Studio musikFabrik, a four-year model project organised by the Ensemble musikFabrik in Cologne to promote talented young musicians.
