Voilà, the ensemble 4.1! The only 'Piano Windtet' in the world: four wind soloists and one pianist dedicate themselves full of enthusiasm to this wonderful classical but neglected musical genre, which is mostly cultivated, if at all, by ad hoc ensembles. In addition to Beethoven's classic, a rarity by Herzogenberg and the world premiere recording of a new composition can be heard here. Their special communicative power and their intoxicating atmosphere on stage are repeatedly praised by critics and have become the hallmark of ensemble 4.1. The group consists of pianist Thomas Hoppe, oboist Jorg Schneider, clarinetist Alexander Glucksmann, bassoonist Christoph Knitt, and hornist Fritz Pahlmann.
