Since it was created in October 2006 at the “Conservatoire National Supérieur Musique et Danse” of Lyon, the K wind quintet already has a rich experience, full of success and dynamism.

Noticed during the 5th International Chamber Music Competition of Lyon (CIMCL) in 2008 (2nd Prize and Special Prize from Bayer CropScience) and during the Tomasi International Competition in Marseille in 2009 with a 3rd Price, the quintet performs in France and abroad (Septembre musical de l’Orne, Printemps des jeunes interprètes in Grenoble, cultural season of Bayer in Leverkusen…)

Sharing a common wish of discovery, guided by musical personalities like P. Bernold, JL. Capezzali, D. Walter, the five musicians have developed a rich and varied repertoire, exploring three centuries of music. They give a special care to music of our time, working with composers like the young Chinese composer Xinyan Li, from whom they played for the first time in Europe a several-times-awarded piece. They also like to play the master-pieces of the great repertoire arranged for their ensemble.

The K wind quintet also want to invent new forms of  music making, and they often collaborate with artists from other horizons : music and cuisine, during a partnership with the Paul Bocuse school, performances in hospitals, schools, short movies music…
