The Vienna Waltz Ensemble
While living in Vienna, I played regularly with several of the many Waltz Ensembles there. I have always loved the music of Johann Strauss, Josef Lanner and their contemporaries. Living and working as a musician in Vienna I was introduced to the "original" way to play their music, the way the world hears it performed in the famous New Year's Concert.
When I moved to the United States I realized that waltzes and polkas are hardly ever performed here. That is why I founded the Vienna Waltz Ensemble.
This music is beautiful, elegant, fun and perfectly suited for both concerts and parties. I am very fortunate to have another Austrian musician in the group, violinist Katharina Radlberger. We are joined by Laura Wilkins, flute, and Ana Sorina Popa, piano.
Past performances include regular appearances at functions of the Austro-American Association, weddings and parties.
We love to bring you the original Viennese spirit!
