Ensemble 4.1 is a “piano windtet” brought to life by four wind soloists from top German orchestras and one unmistakable pianist. Their exceptional communicative power and intoxicating on-stage presence are repeatedly praised by critics and have become the hallmark of Ensemble 4.1.
In addition to the original masterworks for this instrumentation by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, the ensemble is devoted to discovering rarely played compositions from the Romantic and Modern periods. After many years of silence, composers like Walther Gieseking, Theodor Verhey, Herrmann Zilcher, and Arne Oldberg are again being performed for an enthusiastic public.
Since its inception in 2013, Ensemble 4.1 has crisscrossed the globe and performed recitals in China, Pakistan, Austria, Germany, Algeria, Canada, and the United States.
