Eine Kleine Wind
(A Little Wind Ensemble...)

Eine Kleine Wind (EKW) exist for the purpose of making fine quality chamber music while bringing wind instruments to centre stage. The name Eine Kleine Wind or ‘a little wind ensemble’ is a take on Mozart’s famous composition Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music).

Our base ensemble consists of oboe, horn and bassoon and in early 2016 EKW launched our Upwind! School’s Program with the aim to inspire students to take up learning these lesser known instruments. This program has been successful in helping schools to build a more balanced music program and to inspire students to engage with music in general. This unique instrumentation is refreshing and our audiences at public concerts have found it interesting to have the chance to see these instruments up close in a chamber music setting compared to only seeing them from a distance in an orchestra. Keep up to date with our public concerts by signing up to our mailing list!

In addition to our public concerts, EKW can provide music for private events, ceremonies or corporate functions. We engage some of Melbourne’s top freelance musicians and can easily expand to a wind quintet or to include brass. In 2018 EKW also developed a workshop to help businesses with Team Building.
