The Junge Deutsche Philharmonie belongs to leading German orchestras and has fostered the organization of new chamber music ensembles for many years. The orchestra is composed of over one hundred of the best international musicians, chosen from the twenty-five thousand music students in Germany. Formed in 2002, the arirang-Quintett stems from this orchestra and comprises five talented musicians. The ensembles repertoire includes classical, romantic as well as contemporary works, including several works given their premiere performance by the Quintet.
After a successful debut in the Bochum theatre, the arirang-Quintett was selected by Jeunesses Musicales Germany out of many chamber music ensembles, to represent Germany for the International Showcase of Young Musicians 2004, in Croatia.
In 2005 the quintet was awarded 2nd prize in the International Wind Quintet Competition, Henri Tomasi, in France, and 2nd prize in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition. In 2007, arirang-Quintett became the scholarship-winner of the Deutscher Musikrat.
Arirang-Quintett has performed in festivals at home and abroad, such as: the Northern Lights Festival, Tromsø; Semanas Musicales de Frutillar, Chile; Chamber Music Festival, Styria; the Vendsyssel Festival, Denmark; the Ohrid Summer Festival in Macedonia; and the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Bach Fest in Leipzig. Invitations have followed to North and South America, Pakistan, Yemenia, Latvia, Angola, India, Dubai, Kuwait and Azerbaijan.
The Quintet members are all current members of the major symphony orchestras in Germany and Switzerland.
