Berlin Counterpoint is the name of this multinational ensemble now starting on its international career. The young musicians won the Usedom Music Prize in 2013 and are now presenting their debut CD released by GENUIN. This is chamber music for wind instruments and piano bursting with energy original works of Poulenc, Beethoven, Connesson and Barber, as well as their own phenomenal adaptation of Richard Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel. It sounds great and swings, chuckles and giggles. Virtuosissimo wind players!
