Barockensemble der Wiener Symphoniker

The Baroque ensemble of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1989, in order to establish a range
of concerts with high ranking baroque music in the scope of the Bregenz festival in the Maria Bildstein
baroque church. These concerts developed into a real attraction for the public in the course of the years. On
the basis of this success the ensemble was also invited to play at the special church service “100 years of the
Vienna Symphony Orchestra” in July 2000 in Bregenz, and guested at the “Schubertiade” (a festival for Franz
Schubert) in Schwarzenberg in 2003. Dolf Peter Oebbecke listened to the ensemble in the summer of 2003 in
Bildstein and immediately engaged them for Triberg. What is special about the ensemble is that the style of
playing and phrasing of the baroque is combined with the audio possibilities of today’s instruments, and so a
unique sound culture is developed. The CD project: “FIORI MUSICALI TRIBERG” is a great joy for all
members of the ensemble and at the same time a special artistic challenge. Through the targeted choice of solo
instruments, each CD has its own programmatic style and distinctive design.
