VIENNA CHAMBER SYMPHONY QUINTET
The ensemble performs a vast repertoire of symphonic, opera and concerto works reworked for string quintet, from classic pieces through to contemporary compositions, often uncovering rarities by unjustly neglected composers.
The WKS was founded in March 2006, ‘Mozart Year’, and made its successful debut with a series of concerts in Spain that met with both public and critical acclaim, with the ensemble described as the best performers of the Mozart-devoted season.
The WKS has since performed throughout Europe in Spain, France, the UK, Poland, the Netherlands and Denmark, and in Latin America in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay and Panama. Future performances include more engagements in Latin America and Europe.
The ensemble has recently explored chamber versions of piano concertos, particularly focusing on the works of Mozart and Beethoven.
