Founded in 2001 by conductor Barak Tal (the Ensemble’s current Music Director), The Tel-Aviv Soloists Ensemble has already performed with internationally renowned artists, such as violinists Maxim Vengerov and Ida Haendel, violist Tabea Zimmermann, countertenor Andreas Scholl, baritone singer Klaus Mertens, clarinetists Giora Feidman and Chen Halevi, pianists Itamar Golan, Ian Fountain and Boris Berman, and bassoon player Sergio Azzolini.
Its concerts have been received enthusiastically by both critics and audiences ("An international class level of playing worthy of Carnegie Hall" Ara Guzelimian, artistic adviser at Carnegie Hall; "the exquisite musicians were sweeping the public off their seats"  Jungfrau Zeitung, Switzerland).

The Ensemble has performed in the world's major concert halls, such as Carnegie Hall, New York, and Konzerthaus, Vienna, in major international festivals, such as Interlaken Classics, Switzerland, and the Arthur Rubinstein Festival, Israel, and in live radio and TV broadcasts in Europe and in Israel. The Ensemble is recipient of an award for excellence from the Buchman-Heyman Foundation, and of grants by The America-Israel Cultural Foundation, and The Rich Foundation.

The Ensemble comprises 30 of Israel's finest young musicians (ages 20-35), among them players in leading Israeli chamber groups, young soloists and winners of competitions. It was formed out of the desire to create a young Israeli professional chamber orchestra of the highest standard. It is recognized today as a vibrant, fresh voice in Israeli classical music.
