A small ensemble for big musical challenges. Four soloists from the legendary Vienna Philharmonic, accompanied by a piano, have joined forces to reinvent the concept of the orchestra with their strikingly original performance choices. The Viennese ensemble loves to take its audiences on unexpected and electrifying journeys through eras and musical styles that are seemingly far apart: from the great classics to pop music, film, and ballet; from grand opéra to French chansons or the klezmer repertoire. Not just the usual crossover, but a virtuoso challenge based on surprising combinations and highly sophisticated practices. A Mission Possible, as stated in the title of their first album, released in 2018, when the “Phil Five” embarked on their adventure as a quintet in Wien, the world capital of great music.
