Accurately self-called a piano 'windtet," Ensemble 4.1 is a group of four wind soloists from top German orchestras with a deep commitment to chamber music plus pianist. In addition to the first masterworks for this instrumentation by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, the ensemble is devoted to discovering rarely played compositions for this combination from the Romantic and Modern periods. After many years of silence, works by such composers as Walther Gieseking, Theodor Verhey, Herrmann Zilcher and Arne Oldberg are again being heard by an enthusiastic public.

The beginnings of the group were fostered by the renowned Goethe Institute, which assisted with the initial concerts and worldwide tours. Since its inception in 2013, Ensemble 4.1 has already crisscrossed the globe and performed recitals in China, Pakistan, Austria, Germany, Algeria, Canada and the USA, in cities such as Berlin, Istanbul, New York, Toronto, Ottawa, Karachi, Shanghai and Chengdu. It has appeared with great success at festivals in Denmark and on Malta, as well as at the Kotor Festival in Montenegro.
