Standard-Formation:

Build by young, highly talented orchestral musicians with international experience as chamber music player, between the ages of 25 and 45, the basis of the POE
is formed by a permanent string section of 50 players as core ensemble led by permanent principals.

The string section is augmented, according to requirements of the score, with
a permanent wind section of 22 players, plus timpanist and percussionists. Schematically arranged: 14.12.10.8.6 / 3.3.3.3 / 4.2.3.1 + timpani/perc.
(75 musicians)

Depending on the repertoire:

To perform the (late)-romantic repertoire - the so-called “Mahler” variant, which requires 80 or more players (+choir and soloists) - the orchestra extends forces with a selected group of extra-players.
Schematically arranged: 16.14.12.10.8 / 4.4.4.4 / 6.4.3.1 + timpani/perc 3.
(95 musicians)

The classical orchestra - the so-called “Beethoven” variant, necessary to perform the symphonies by the first Viennese School, requires 47 or more players. Schematically arranged: 10.8.6.5.3 / 2.2.2.2 / 4.2.0.0 + timpani (47 musicians)

Ensembles:

The orchestra operates also with smaller variable organic arrangements from string orchestra “String-Soloists of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe” to the windensemble-formation “Wind-Soloists of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe”. Schematically arranged: 5.4.4.3.1  (17 musicians / “String-Soloists”) 1.2.2.2 / 2.0.0.0 + 1 Double Bass (10 musicians / “Wind-Soloists”)

POE Firebird programme.

In addition to its concert and touring schedule, the POE is available to hire for commercial recordings, film soundtracks, jingles and computer games for a wide variety of clients - film companies, classical composers, pop producers, computer game developers, jingle writers and library music. The POE can help with all your needs, including finding a suitable studio, conductor and chorus.

The POE can provide any number of players from full orchestras to chamber ensembles and top specialist players for non-orchestral instruments if required.
