#WHO WE ARE

Through their depth of focus in their approach to works and fathoming the possibilities
for realizing them, the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN breaks new interpretive ground.
Together with Rémy Ballot, the musicians are dedicated to the search for the works’
truth. Ballots penetration of the music and his unveiling of its inner logic lead to a new
understanding of the orchestra in mutual trust shared with the musicians. With
experimental programming, they also introduce unconventional contexts. 

The musicians of the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN feel the need to interpret works from their everyday professional lives in another manner, outside of the music industry, in their own right and for the audience. Through their collaboration with Rémy Ballot, whose insight emanates from deep knowledge of the works and their inner logic, as well as his ability to allow the magic of ensemble playing to unfold, they have the possibility of realizing this inner passion, artistic interaction and expressive possibility. This responsibility, which each and every musician feels, based on mutual trust, distinguishes the ensemble and forms a new understanding of the orchestra.

ESTABLISHING THE ORCHESTRA

Founder Norbert Taubl, clarinetist for the Vienna Philharmonic, and Rémy Ballot, conductor whose credits include the renowned Bruckner cycle in St. Florian, bring together musicians from many different countries, comprising those who can look back
upon many years of professional activity as well as young talents. Their first CD (Schubert’s 1st and “Unfinished” Symphonies) was immediately met with great approval from the general public and critics alike upon its release, thereby forging a trend-setting
path. Also their second CD (Beethoven's Eroica and Egmont Overture) was taken up with great attention and extraordinary appreciation for Ballots work on music and sound. 

THE CHAMBER ENSEMBLE

In addition to the orchestra and in the same musical spirit, the two founders of the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN brought the CHAMBER ENSEMBLE into being. Rémy Ballot and Norbert Taubl form the core of the chamber music ensemble, composed of musicians from the young chamber orchestra, continuing the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN's interpretive path in chamber music form as well. The variable instrumentation makes specific programming possible while allowing the ensemble not always to have to
conform to the same instrumentation. Every instrumentation can be realized from string trios to grand wind serenades. Realizing diverse musical concepts as well as playing unconventional programs are possible in this manner. In addition, moderated concerts offer supplementary access to the works performed through introductions to the works and discussions with the audience.

ARTISTIC SPECTRUM

The ensemble’s repertoire is focused on famous as well as lesser-known works of the Viennese Classical era, music that existed during the beginning of the development of the modern orchestra, music that gradually developed, thanks to its clear form and inner beauty, into a haven of tranquility, to the center of the orchestra’s musical life.

The love of variety and the principle of questioning lead the KLANGKOLLEKTIV to declare itself open to experimental programming. The collaboration with the platform “Hunger auf Kunst und Kultur” (Hunger for Art and Culture), in which artistic endeavors and social engagement are brought together, is of special importance to the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN.
