About the ensemble

Exactly ten years ago, an invitation from the then director of the Goethe-Institut Karachi to perform in Pakistan gave the initial impetus for founding the ‘ensemble 4.1’, the only piano windtet of this kind in the world. 125 concerts, 2 CDs and an ‘OPUS Klassik’ nomination later, the ensemble is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year by performing in the Berlin Philharmonic, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Carnegie Hall in New York.

And of course, the anniversary celebrations would not be complete without holding concerts in Pakistan marking a return to the ensemble’s “birthplace“.
