- Yes, life is as strange as
folk songs. We don't know if
they were meant to be in major or minor key... Some of the melodies are exquisitely beautiful. At any rate I have written down chord progression that are outrageous. However,
in my defense I must say that they did not originate at the
piano, but in my mind.

BIOGRAPHIES  

ENSEMBLE 4.1 PIANO WIND-TET

Nominated for an “International Classical Music Award (ICMA) 2016”.
After studying together and winning positions in highly regarded German orchestras and
universities, five young musicians decided to join again and celebrate their longstanding
friendship and their love for chamber music: Ensemble 4.1 was born!

Four winds – oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn – and a piano, combine with exciting treasures
of original repertoire ranging from Mozart to Widmann.
Concerts in Germany and throughout the world followed shortly after, and the ensemble repeatedly performed on invitation by the Goethe Institute and the German Embassies. The intense communication and special atmosphere created in concert soon became a distinct sign of the ensemble. The professional, yet relaxed attitude of its members, as well as
trademark introductions from the stage and an exuberant joy of performing soon lead to
being labeled “the Easy Riders of the classical scene”.
Besides the masterworks of the genre, namely by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, Ensemble 4.1 concentrates on rediscovering seldomly or never performed
repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries. Composers such as Walter Gieseking, Hermann
Zilcher, David Stephen, Arne Oldberg and Theodor Verhey have thus become accessible favorites to excited audiences everywhere.

THOMAS HOPPE is a collaborative pianist, performing regularly with artists such as Itzhak
Perlman, Tabea Zimmermann and Antje Weithaas. He is the pianist of the ATOS Trio and holds a position at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin.

JÖRG SCHNEIDER is principal oboe in the Jena Philarmonic. He has won numerous awards in
international competitions in Schwerin, Marseille and Osaka, as well as a scholarship from the Deutsche Musikwettbewerb competition.

ALEXANDER GLÜCKSMANN is principal clarinet in the Berlin Symphonic Orchestra, and has also taken part in the Berlin Philharmonic’s Orchestra Academy.

FRITZ PAHLMANN is principal horn at Staatskapelle Weimar. Before that, he played with the
Bamberg Symphonic Orchestra and the Gurzenich Orchestra in Cologne.

CHRISTOPH KNITT was bassoonist at the Radio Symphonic Orchestra Berlin and at the Finnish
National Opera in Helsinki before becoming principal bassoon at the Kammerakademie
Potsdam.
