INFOBOXGenre(s): Contemporary Music
From: Vienna, Austria
Since its founding in 2002, the Ensemble Reconsil Wien has amassed a tremendous stylistic range from new music from all over the world and innovative concert cycles of seldomly performed pieces to classics of the 20th century. The fact that the Vienna School’s chamber music and ensemble pieces are deemed particularly important is due mainly to the ensemble’s close partnership with the Arnold Schönberg Center. Among the numerous premieres which this ensemble has given are pieces from Schönberg, Berg, and Webern. In 2016, the composers and musicians Alexander Wagendristel, Maria Frodel, Manuela Kerer, Peter Jakober, and Thomas Heinisch collectively assumed the role of artistic direction.
