The Ensemble

It was not very difficult to find a name for the ensemble that fits:
Michaela Wild (Violin), Angelika Wild (Violoncello), Andrea Wild (Flute) and Angelika Ortner (Piano).
Already in the early childhood the four Vienna-born musicians got immersed in classical music reaching technical perfection during their studies at university. The four artists have made a name of themselves as professional musicians who are active both on the recital platform and in various orchestras and ensembles.
The desire to perform together marked the foundation of the “Ensemble Wild”.

The Repertoire

In the early years of the Ensemble, the repertoire included typical Viennese Chamber music covering world-famous music of the Strauss dynasty and classical pieces. Regular researches in note archives inspire the quartet to play precious and rarely played pieces of different musical eras. The arrangements of the pieces are intended to illustrate that even micro-settings can give an idea of the original orchestral sound.
The repertoire of the Ensemble has developed and changed in recent years leading to a substantial extension of its repertoire. Meanwhile, a strong focus is on film music. Various composers have written pieces particularly for the Ensemble Wild, which do not follow a specific type of music or musical tradition and can therefore not be considered as distinct genres.
