Chamber music written for Paul Wittgenstein

The marvelous Quintets by the Viennese composer Franz Schmidt are well known. On top of that we have a range of works by the blind composer Josef Labor, that exist only in handwritten facsimile version. The Variations by Ernest Walker, quartets and trios by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Hans Gál and Franz Schmidt’s pupil Walter Bricht complete this exciting collection. And we are still searching...

Together with many piano solo pieces for the left hand and original duo, trio and quartet repertoire they form a beautiful starting point for our programmes. 

We also follow in Paul’s footsteps and commissioned four new pieces for quintet from Dutch composers, to add the 20th Century voice, and to give Wittgenstein’s legacy a whole new turn. From January to April 2023 we will present four new pieces by Jeppe Moulijn, Marlijn Helder, Prach Boondiskulchok and Primo Ish-Hurwitz.
