Leipzig Flute Ensemble
What happens when five flutists from Prussia, Hungary, Bavaria and France meet in the glamorous Saxon music metropolis of Leipzig? It forms a lively, spirited, high-profile professional flute ensemble - QUINTESSENZ!
We have been playing together for more than 20 years - the enthusiasm for the sound of the flute connects us like it did on the first day, and through the diversity of our cast it always sparks our creativity and joy of playing anew. We are resident in the Gewandhaus Orchestra, in the MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig, in the Staatskapelle Halle, in the State Opera Hannover and at the Music Univerities of Weimar and Leipzig. Here we find our inspiration and have already taken quite a few "favorite pieces" from our daily work into the Quintessenz repertoire. Unusual is our line-up: from piccolo to bass flute and several special instruments, we offer the diversity of the entire flute family, as well as our own arrangements, commissioned works and special concert formats!
