BIOGRAPHY

Klangforum Wien enjoys a reputation as the flagship among contemporary music ensembles from Austria. Founded in 1985 by Beat Furrer, who to this day remains associated with the ensemble as a conductor and composer, it has won international acclaim in recent decades. The 24-member soloist ensemble has a considerable track record. With premieres of over 500 compositions, the Klangforum Wien is a major proponent of contemporary music. One of its recipes for success is that unlike in other ensembles, it is not the director alone who selects the programme, but also the musicians themselves, represented by a changing team of programmers. Their active involvement in the repertoire choice and their intense understanding of the pieces contribute to the diversity. The ensemble’s experience is reflected in their perfect execution of the pieces.
