I Cinque Elementi Wind Ensemble

I Cinque Elementi Wind EnsembleThe musicians of the “I Cinque Elementi” Wind Ensemble (the five elements wind Ensemble) are the solo players of the “Civica Orchestra di Fiati di Padova” (Wind Orchestra of Padua, Italy).
The members of this ensemble are joined not only by a strong interest for chamber music, but also by the wish to discover new repertories.
The musicians of the group have attended the masterclasses of famous teachers and concert artists and have won the first prize of important musical contests as soloists or as members of chamber ensembles. They play with famous orchestras like Venice's “Orchestra del Teatro la Fenice” and Ferrara's “Orchestra del Teatro Comunale”, l'Aquila's “Orchestra Città Aperta”.
I Cinque Elementi” Wind Ensemble gave its first performance during the International Summer Festival in Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany) where it obtained the warm approval of public and critics.
In early 2010 the Ensemble has received another important recognition: the artistic director of the Festival "Rencontres Musicales Internationales des Graves" (Bordeaux, France) - the previous editions of the festival hosted famous artists such as Mstislav Rostropovich, Maxim Vengerov, Didier Lockwood, Zacharia Zorin and the String Quartet "Quatuor Parker” - asked “I Cinque Elementi” Wind Ensemble to perform in a series of concerts and teach students who attend the festival master classes.
