The Weiner Ensemble was established from final year and doctorate students of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in September, 2014 under the supervision of professor Márta Gulyás.
The group’s main goal is to broaden the repertoire of this special instrumentation, the so-called pierrot ensemble formation, as well as introducing it to a broader audience. The repertoire of the ensemble contains music from solo pieces of the baroque era to 20th century, contemporary ensemble compositions and pieces of young Hungarian composers.
In honour of the chamber music work and traditions of the Hungarian composer Leo Weiner, and with the approval and support of the Weiner Leo Foundation, the chamber group changed its name to Weiner Ensemble in September 2015.
