VIOLINISSIMO was founded in 2004 by the violinist Ms. Ulli Buesel. The special concept means that the young musicians are led to make music independently and on their own responsibility (the orchestra plays without a conductor), whereby the respect for one another and the deep understanding of the respective pieces of music requires each individual to be fully involved in the group. Do not take part, but show responsibility – not only contribute, but actively join in and create!
It is important to the artistic director that each player retains his or her individual way of making music, but still leaves room for the other members of the ensemble through attentive listening and understanding of the great musical direction. This leads to a profound intensity and expressiveness. The joy that this kind of music-making brings with it has already completely inspired the audience in many concerts.The “Chamber Ensemble VIOLINISSIMO” is the next step of this special concept and consists of 8-15 advanced members of the JKO VIOLINISSIMO. Large chamber music works are rehearsed in an almost professional manner.
The most important thing for the artistic director, however, is that the young musicians contribute their own ideas and thus shape the character of the ensemble. VIOLINISSIMO was not only able to inspire the audience in the last years, but was also successful at some competitions: Winner of the Bavarian Orchestra Competition 2011 and 2015 Winner as the best Bavarian Orchestra in all categories of the German Orchestra Competition 2012 and 2016 Tassilo Culture Award granted by Süddeutsche Zeitung 2012 In the same year VIOLINISSIMO and its artistic director Ms Ulli Büsel were honored with the signature in the Golden Book of Erding (near to Munich) Rotary Music Award 2013 and 2018 Award with distinction at the International Orchestra Competition “Summa Cum Laude” in Vienna – concerts at the Golden Hall of Musikverein and at the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus 2013 Concert tours have also taken the ensemble to Singapore, Great Britain and the Carnegie Hall in New York. Since 2015 VIOLINISSIMO has had a cooperation with the Kreismusikschule Erding.
