The String Quintet Wiener Kammersymphonie (WKS) is composed of highly talentedmusicians based in Vienna. The group brings to its’ audiences avast musical repertoire from classics to 19th century to contemporarycompositions, often performing works by (unjustly) forgotten andoverlooked composers,bringing out the very best of the Ensemble members. The WKS was founded in March 2006 in the“Year of Mozart” and made its outstandingly successful debut with aseries of concerts in Spain that met with both public and criticalacclaim describing the group as the best performers of a long seasonentirely dedicated to Mozart.From that moment onthe WKSperformed troughEurope (Spain, France, UK, Poland, Netherlands, Danemark, very oftenfollowing a new invitation) and Latin America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile,Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Panama).Future performances include further Latin America and Europeengagements, always developing the special symphonical/opera/ concertorepertoire "revisitated" in the chamber music version for StringQuintet. A specific place currently occupies the performance of Piano concertos in the unique chamber version, particularly the Mozart’s and Beethoven’s works. ... the string quintet of the Wiener Kammersymphonie,unrivaled performers for intonation,soft timbre and ironic descriptive thickness...(Giornale dell'Umbria)..Mozarts Zauberflöte with rich string sound instead of trombones and violin spiccato instead of Papageno's glockenspiel...At the same time, the coloratura of the Queen of the Night was once enjoyed in a different way, performed by the first violin... respectable as the ensemble then Ernst Krenek' s “Seven Easy Pieces” "from 1955 sound and articulation changed. So came the short miniatures to a special treat....(Saarbrücken Kultur).

...Wiener Kammersymphonie shows grandeur of symphonic Beethoven......the most remarkable thing about the instrument is the so-called fifth string (only orchestral basses have such a string), which gave the ensemble a sometimes immeasurable depth........fiery play, in which the musicians played at the height of their ability....The musicians succeeded amply to at least create the suggestion of a large orchestra.The audience thanked the Wiener Kammersymphonie at the end with a cheering standing ovation..(Jan-Willem van Ree, Programmdirector Edesche Concertzaal)
