Ludwig Chamber Players

# Tokyo # Stuttgart

Chambermusic with passion

The musicians of the ensemble coming from Japan, Latvia, France, Switzerland, Canadia and Germany. They are principal players with the SWR Symphonie Orchester, Stuttgart and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, as well as the Saito Kinen (Director Seiji Ozawa), Budapest and Bayreuth Festival Orchestras. In addition, the musicians are winners of prestigious competitions including ARD (German TV), the Geneva International Music Competition, the Carl Nielsen Flute Competition and many more.
The first time that this ensemble of award-winning soloists got together was in spring 2013. The musicians were preparing for their first performance together at the prestigious Tokyo Spring Festival. After just a few bars, they knew they wanted to carry on working together. At the subsequent concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, the ensemble was received euphorically by the public. The Ludwig Chamber players have dedicated themselves to the wide variety of chamber music for mixed string and wind ensembles from the 18th and 19th centuries. But works by contemporary composers also find their way into their programmes.

It is our grat pleasure to present our new Mozart recording. Kei and Dirk did a lot of research in order to show you why was Mozart the most fashionable artist in his times. Neither later composers nor the pop icons of today have achieved such popularity among all levels of society.
We have tried to show Mozart’s euphoria and sense of fun at disrupting traditional ways of making music audible in each bar, with each phrasing and articulation.
