No chairs. No music stands, nothing. The way Carion fill the stage with musical and emotional content is something remarkable.

– Allgemeine Zeitung

The prize-winning Carion Wind Quintet has developed a unique style where all works are performed from memory without music stands, giving the musicians great freedom to communicate with one another and with the audience. What’s more, their musically-based choreography reveals the inner architecture of the pieces, adding a dimension to the concert experience that makes even the avant-garde portions of the repertoire readily accessible. Carion’s fresh approach to chamber music has brought acclaim for their performances in Europe’s most prestigious festivals including the Rheingau Festival, Kissinger Sommer, and Beethovenfest Bonn.
