Weimarer Bläserquintett

The outstanding Weimarer Bläserquintett were the 3rd prize winners of the International ARD Music Competition in Munich in 2006 and were again honoured in 2010 at the German Music Competition with a grant from the Bundesauswahl Konzerte Junger Künstler. The young ensemble, comprised of Tomo Jäckle (flute), Frederike Timmermann (oboe), Sebastian Lambertz (clarinet), Stephan Schottstädt (horn) and Jacob Karwath (bassoon), made its debut in 2002 at the national competition “Jugend musiziert,” where they were received 1st prize. Their continued musical growth earned them further honours: 1st prize and Special Prize for Best Performance at the European Music Prize for Youth in Dubrovnik in 2004 and a successful appearance in the International Chamber Music Competition Interlaken the following year, where they took 3rd prize.

Since then, they have performed in such renowned venues as the Cologne Philharmonic, the Tonhalle in Düsseldorf, the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Essen Philharmonic and the Herkulessaal in Munich. Furthermore, the quintet has appeared in many important music festivals and chamber music series to date, a few of which include the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, the Mecklenberg-Vorpommern Festival, the Mozartfest Würzburg, the Zermatt Festival (where they performed with the Sharoun Ensemble Berlin), and the Marler Debut and Traunsteiner Summer Concert Series. The Weimarer Bläserquintett has also been recorded by and heard regularly on German national radio stations: Bayerischer Rundfunk, Südwestdeutscher Rundfunk, Westdeutscher Rundfunk and Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk. In this capacity, they recorded their debut album “Weimarer Bläserquintett - A Recital Experience” in 2012. The quintet has made their mark internationally, touring, at the invitation of various German Foreign Offices, in India, South Korea, and Romania. To round it off, they have been heard everywhere from the most luxurious cruise line in the world - the MS Europa - to the official offices of the president of Germany. It is also the work of Weimar Wind Quintet to pass on the knowledge they have gained from their various experiences to the next generation through teaching at academies, courses, and masterclasses. The Weimarer Bläserquintett is supported by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben.
