Seven young gifted musicians – mostly members of the Vienna Philharmonic and Berliner Philharmoniker – founded an ensemble in 2007 and on the basis of classical sound and virtuosity they search for the roots of classical music in folk inspirations, klezmer tradition and Gypsy music. They do not limit themselves by European music, being intimate also with tango and Latin jazz. Since the 2011/2012 season The Philharmonics have had their own subscription cycle in Vienna Konzerthaus, they perform at festivals, they have got the invitations from Riccardo Muti and Valery Gergiev. Their new CD ‘Oblivion’ released in June 2013 by Deutsche Grammophon is being sold in 46 countries of the world. Returning from the Japan tour the ensemble will come to BMF. Members of The Philharmonics are known also from our concert stages: violinists Tibor Kováč and Roman Jánoška, viola player Thilo Fechner, cellist Stephan Koncz, double bass player Ödön Rácz, clarinettist Daniel Ottensamer and pianist František Jánoška.
