“Superb…Pure-toned instrumental textures, smoothly blended ensemble and sterling musicianship…marvelous.” – Chicago Tribune

The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet (Philharmonisches Bläserquintett Berlin) has virtually redefined the sound of the classical wind quintet bringing extraordinary artistic skill, passion and gravitas to world stages. With wind instruments’ hallmark lightness and exuberance, the members of this elite musical group succeed in providing a unity in tone that is both powerful and beautiful. Founded in 1988, during the era of Herbert von Karajan, this was the first permanently established wind quintet in the renowned orchestra’s rich tradition of chamber music.
