The Camerata Schulz Wien was formed in 2002 by Vienna Philharmonic solo flutist and active international soloist, Wolfgang Schulz. Its performers include members of the Schulz family, which has a traditional line of musicians, as well as other young and upcoming professionals who had been educated in a special way to play Viennese Classics. Most of them have studied with Gerhard Schulz who is both brother of Wolfgang and 2nd Violinist with the former Alban Berg Quartet. Camerata Schulz Wien appears nationally and internationally in many varied forms of ensemble, sometimes even without conductor, and works primarily together with international soloists. These have included, for example Christian Altenburger, Xavier de Maistre, Wolfgang Schulz, Stefan Vladar and Naoko Yoshino, to name a few. The ensemble is an important and permanent part of the festival “Bonheur musical” in France and of the Stuppach Palace Mozart concert series in Lower Austria.

Besides major classical and romantic repertoire, the VIENNarte trio is also dedicated to presenting contemporary music to audiences, and is developing interesting musical combinations from new connections. Many cd productions show the ensemble´s works.

Impetus for the maturing and perfecting of the trio´s musicianship and artistry comes from active participation in masterclasses. These include at the Sandor Vegh Academy (Prague), lessons with Menahem Pressler (Beaux Arts Trio) and with members of the Alban Berg Quartet and the Vienna Haydn Trio.
