Flutist Rudolf Gindlhumer, pianist Karl Eichinger and oboist Claudia Kefer-Gindlhumer — together known as the Vienna Symphony Virtuosi — gave a “concert of extra class” at the Beihang Sunrise Concert Hall on the evening of November 20. With close coordination and skillful performance, they provided a feast for the ears of music lovers.
Accompanied by the mellow, bright and powerful sound of the piano, the concert kicked off with Haydn’s “Piano Sonata C- Major”. Following that, the three performers respectively played several classics like “3 Romances” by Schumann, “Carmen Fantasie Brillante” by Francois Borne and “Vergnügungszug” by Johann Strauss. Their instrumental ensemble “Trio for Flute, Oboe and Piano” brought the whole concert to the climax. The audience and the performers communicated their hearts through the vibration of the air in a harmonious state, forming a fantastic resonance. Their extraordinary skills and performances won rapturous applause from the audience after the show.
Established 35 years ago, the Vienna Symphony Virtuosi has held a number of chamber music concerts in various venues. With the aim of highlighting Vienna music and its unique timbre, this outstanding chamber music ensemble not only performs baroque and classical music, but also is very active in performing contemporary works including jazz inspired music and pure jazz. Beisides, they are very active internationally, and have made concert tours to nearly all European countries, USA, China, South Africa, Canada and many others. They have also played concerts at a lot of festivals including Bregenz Festival, Carinthischer Sommer Festival, Linzer Brucknerfest, Viennafest, Haydn festival Eisenstadt, etc.
