The second album on CAvi-music with the Dutch/French/German group Flex Ensemble contains the new discovery of the arrangement from Beethoven’s pupil and friend Ferdinand Ries of Beethoven’s Third Symphony, “Eroica” for piano quartet. Known for their musically refined and highly energetic performances, the Flex Ensemble has been thrilling audiences with programs ranging from Classical and Romantic piano quartet repertoire to modern presentations featuring work by preeminent composers of our time, including Marton Illes and Gerard Pesson.
The Flex Ensemble was awarded 1st Prize and the Special Prize for Interpretation at the International Schumann Chamber Music Award in Frankfurt in 2013. They were also winners of the Gianni Bergamo Classic Music Award 2015 in Lugano and the recipient of awards at the Kiejstut Bacewicz International Chamber Music Competition in Lódz and the Premio Trio di Trieste.
