Klangkollektiv Wien is one of those ensembles that plays modern instruments in a historically-informed way. The string complement is 6–5–4–4–2, which allows the music’s textures to maintain an exciting openness…
The orchestra, which mainly consists of musicians from the Vienna Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Niederösterreichische Tonkünstler, impresses with a live recording of the Eroica, played in a historically informed manner on modern instruments. The sound is very fresh and transparent. With the different levels of the music being clearly exposed, one is listening behind the first lines in order to grasp the meaningfulness of what is happening in the side-lines. The nice thing is that the music never gets purely technical, but even rather soulful.
