Since its first concert, which took place in 1986 at Radio-France under the baton of Laurent Cuniot, TM+ has made a name for itself as one of the first French ensembles dedicated to contemporary and classical repertoires. With a nucleus of twenty musicians, all remarkably versatile, and around fifteen musicians who join them every so often, TM+ tackles 18th-century chamber music as well as 20th-century classics and the most recent works. Since 1996, TM+ has been in residence at the Maison de la Musique de Nanterre, where it offers a concert season in addition to various cultural activities all over the city, such as concert encounters, concert lectures or commented rehearsals. Through its original programmes, its relationship with the public, and its emphasis on living composers, TM+ has created a developing musical structure in synch with the times, both refreshing the way we listen to works of the past and fostering the discovery of contemporary works. TM+ is supported by the French Ministry of Culture/DRAC Île-de-France, by the City of Nanterre, the Île-de-France Region and the Hauts-de-Seine Department. It also receives support from SACEM, SPEDIDAM, the French Music Export Offices and CultureFrance. MECENAT MUSICAL SOCIETE GENERALE is the main sponsor of TM+.
