With a fantastic quintet programme we open the new season and play with our smallest ensemble five times: with concerts in St. Pölten, Fulpmes, Mieming, Klosterneuburg and Vienna.

10 years Atout

We celebrate ourselves, our love for string octets and great chamber music throughout the year(s): on November 12 at Klosterneuburg Chamber Concerts. With an octet by Joachim Raff, with 10 musicians in Astor Piazzolla's Estaciones Porteñas and of course with YOU – chapeau!
