FOUR wind soloists from top German orchestras and ONE unmistakable pianist, Thomas Hoppe, devote themselves to this still-undiscovered wonderful musical genre. Their exceptional communicative power and their intoxicating atmosphere on stage are repeatedly praised by critics and fans alike. Ensemble 4.1 has already crisscrossed the globe and performed recitals in China, Pakistan, Austria, Germany, Algeria, Canada and the USA. In addition to the masterpieces for this original setting by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, the ensemble is devoted to discovering rarely played compositions from the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. After many years, composers like Walter Gieseking, Theodor Verhey, Heinrich von Herzogenberg and David Stephen are again being performed for an enthusiastic public.
