Notes and Editorial Reviews

An award-winning ensemble, the Veits Quintet was awarded the first prize at the Braunschweig International Music Competition in 2013, and most recently the second prize at the International Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition in Copenhagen. For their first release with Ars Produktion, the group has put together a program which they believe will perfectly display their finest qualities, including works from Ravel, Francaix, Taffanel, and Ibert. Founded in 2012, The Veits Quintet has quickly become one of the most promising woodwind quintets of this generation. The performers are graduates of Universities in Munchen, Trossingen, Berlin, and London, and have individually performed alongside the finest orchestras in the world.
