Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A brilliant orchestrator, Ravel was responsible for what is perhaps the most famous orchestration of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition as well as for his own work Le Tombeau de Couperin. This CD from Phil.harmonie features chamber arrangements of these works by Wolfgang Renz. Ensemble Berlin, comprised of musicians from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, was drawn together by the opportunity to make high-level music in a relaxed atmosphere together.

This group of musicians and friends from the Berliner Philharmoniker orchestra were drawn together by the opportunity to make high-level music in a relaxed atmosphere together. They started playing in an ensemble at the first ever Landsberg summer music festival in 1999. By the time this small yet refined festival of chamber music had drawn to a close, a shared desire to give further concerts at other times of year had been expressed - and thus the Ensemble Berlin was born. In 2006 the ensemble introduced itself to Berlin's fans of chamber music on "home ground" in the city's Philharmonie, and they also performed at Würzburg's Mozart Festival. In the meantime, the Ensemble Berlin has recorded several CDs that document not only the ensemble's airy, resonating sound and finely-tuned style, but also highlights their growing repertoire.
