The KlangVerwaltung Orchestra Munich was founded in 1997 by violinists Andreas Reiner and Josef Kröner. Its ­unusual name: ­“KlangVerwaltung” translates literally as “sound ­administration”, expressing the Orchestra’s aim to perform great masterpieces whilst remaining faithful to their ­composers. The members of the ­KlangVerwaltung are drawn from ­leading ­orchestras, ­including the ­Vienna, ­Berlin and ­Munich ­Philharmonic ­Orchestras, and also include ­internationally ­renowned soloists and ­chamber­ ­musicians. The ­orchestra’s superlative ­technical prowess, ­chamber-music-like interaction, ­extraordinary ­soloist abilities, colorful sound and lively spirit have earned rave reviews from critics and ­audience ­members alike. The orchestra appears regularly at Europe’s major ­venues including Berlin ­Philharmonie, Vienna Musikverein, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, The Vatican, Alte Oper Frankfurt as well as festivals such as Rheingau, Gstaad, Beethoven-Fest Bonn and Herrenchiemsee where they are ­orchestra in residence every summer.
