Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet
Declared “arguably the best ensemble of its kind in the world” (Manchester Evening News), the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet astonishes audiences worldwide with their range of expression, tonal spectrum, and conceptual unity. Critics and fans agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind quintet, and many of their recordings are widely held to be definitive performances. The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet – the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music – are also popular guests at international festivals such as the Edinburgh Festival, the London Proms, the Quintette-Biennale Marseille, and the Salzburg Festival.
