- Chamber Orchestra
Camarata Schulz Wolfgang Schulz founded the “Camarata Schulz” in order to optimally realise his ideals of sound and style. It is a chamber orchestra consisting of members of the Schulz family and closely connected musicians. These include former students of Gerhard (Alban Berg Quartet) and Ulla Schulz as well as friends and colleagues from the Vienna Philharmonic. The concert master of the orchestra is Veronika Schulz.
Camarata Schulz’ first concerts were in 2000. In 2002 members gathered together for a “live-in” week of rehearsal at the Probstei St. Gerold in Vorarlberg. At its conclusion they gave a highly successful concert in the St. Gerold church, and in the days following recorded a CD of the complete flute concertos by Mozart. This was released in November 2003 under Camarata Music, Tokyo. The star Japanese harpist, Naoko Yoshino, with whom Wolfgang Schulz has had an inspiring artistic partnership for many years, could be secured for the harp part.
Concerts featuring this outstanding programme have already been presented in the Herkule Hall, Munich (Germany), Kammer Palace, Waldhauser church (Upper Austria), Probstei of St. Gerold (Vorarlberg), and at the “Carinthian Summer” in Ossiach. In March/April 2006 Camarata Schulz will give guest performances in the Lower Austrian towns of Waidhofen an der Ybbs and Laxenburg (Laxenburg Palace), as well as in France, at the Paris Theatre de Champs Elysee and in Strasbourg.
After single concerts during the past season the Camerata Schulz will be recording the 2nd CD: The Horn concertos by Mozart together with Stefan Dohr, solo horn in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The CD will be available in spring 2009 at Camerata Tokyo.
