The musicians of the wind quintet “Vienna Wind Ensemble” first met on a tour and sensed already after the first rehearsal for solo positions in the orchestra that they harmonize with each other both from musical and human points of view. Shortly thereafter the idea came to start a wind quintet: The Vienna Wind Ensemble was born! The musicians from Austria, Germany and Hungary dedicate themselves in the first place to delivering the works of the Viennese Classic. In the foreground of making music together are the adaptations of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as of the Strauss family. Furthermore, the musicians give master classes, in which they deliver the style of Viennese music making. Although the Ensemble is still very young, they already attended the April Spring Friendship Art Festival in Korea in April 2011, where a total of 13 nations were represented. Alongside ensembles from Germany, Canada, Finland, Bulgaria, Russia, etc. the Vienna Wind Ensemble scored the first prize. At the second consecutive participation in April 2012 the quintet captured a victory over 25 nations. In April 2012 the Ensemble placed first at the 6th International Chamber Music Competition “Cameristi dell” Alpe Adria”. Since March 2012 the Vienna Wind Ensemble studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, in the class of Gottfried Pokorny.
