4. Chamber Concert 2022: Arundos Quintett

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

Beethoven, Schumann, Blomenkamp & Ligeti

The Arundos Quintett is a wind quintet based in North Rhine-Westphalia that delights its audiences time and again with original classical programmes of the highest standard.

Founded during their studies at the Cologne University of Music, they have been a firmly established wind quintet since 2013 and impress with their joy of playing, infectious freshness and perfectly coordinated playing.
In doing so, the quintet presents an extraordinary programme with fantastic arrangements of works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Robert Schumann as well as wonderful new and recent compositions by Thomas Blomenkamp and György Ligeti.
