The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet (Philharmonisches Bläserquintett Berlin) make their Barber Institute debut with an eclectic programme for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. The Quintet was founded in 1988, during the era of Herbert von Karajan, the first permanently established wind quintet in the famous orchestra's rich tradition of chamber
music. The members are living musical witnesses to the hugely productive and influential musical partnerships of the Berlin Philharmonic not only with Karajan, but also with its two most recent Musical Directors, Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon
Rattle. As a quintet they have toured the world extensively and continue to be the leaders in the genre through their recording, education commissioning and performing portfolio.
