The Munich-based (Germany) taschenphilharmonie (Pocket Philharmonic Orchestra) is dedicated to chamber symphonic performances based on Arnold Schoenberg’s »Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen« (Society for Private Musical Performances), established in Vienna during the 1920’s. Therefore, this ensemble performs big scale orchestral works from Mozart/Mahler/Beethoven to contemporary compositions with just 12-20 high-profile musicians. The result is a refreshing crystal clear sound combined with multifaceted colours and the vitality from outstanding musicianship to produce the resonance of a much bigger orchestra.
The Pocket Philharmonic Orchestra and its conductor Peter Stangel have received several awards for their innovative concert formats and their educational work. To learn more about the ensemble and the works performed on the CDs please visit
